Nahoua Yeo Quattara was desribed as a grounded and solid man by Karl-Heinz Krieg, who met him 1973 in Nafoun. The name is also spelled Yéo Ouattara. Nahoua is a Koulé who carved his masks in the traditional Senufo style. He learned carving from his father Zamango Quattara. This mask shows the Kapok fruit on top, a symbol and signature of the Koulé.
Nafoun became, beside Ouézomon and Korhogo, one of the carving centres of the Senufo in the last century.

Time of origin between 1950 and 1960.
