Door of attic Baoulé (N° 8324)

Ex private French collection of African art Colmant.

Like many peoples in Africa, the Baoulé decorate the gates of the granary by being inspired by the myth of the founder to protect the crops. In general, they are famous for the care they bring to the decoration of their everyday objects. The origin of the name " Baoulé " comes from " Bauli " meaning " the son is dead ", referring to the legend that Aba Pokou, then queen, sacrificed her son to allow his people to cross a river during the eighteenth century with the aim of settling in a region of gold mines.
