Liberia and the Coast,
the Guere and Wè communities hold annual festivals during the dry season from November to February. These celebrations feature dance performances, with the central figure being the gela. The gela is a composite of the mask, the costume, and the wearer. Each gela mask embodies various identities that correspond to the powers it represents, rather than its physical appearance. The "Ancient One" is one of these masks that have persisted over generations. It is also commonly known as the "Guere War Mask."
