About the Bassa People

“Bassa territory lies in the middle of present day Liberia. Their economy is based on rice which they cultivate around small villages which have a population of around two hundred. Bassa artistic tradition has been influenced by their north-eastern neighbours, the Dan, who live on the Ivory Coast.”
