Female figure Koulango (N° 19196)

This feminine effigy offers a long neck, a narrow bust. The pastille navel, evocative of lineage and fertility, is enhanced by the scarified motifs. Subtle keloids are also inscribed on the neck, bust and thighs. Prestigious mark, a pearl necklace encircles the hips of the character. Beautiful satin black patina, slight cracks.
br> Named Pakhalla by the Dioula, the Koulango formed the Loron in the Voltaic territory. The Dagomba chiefs of the kingdom of Bouna would then have qualified them as " Koulam " (singular: koulango , subject, vassal). Their complex history engendered a no less complex culture. It is between Burkina Faso and Comoé, in the northeast of the Ivory Coast, that their territory extends. Of animist fetishist religion, they address their ancestors and the spirits of nature through sculptures in which the souls of these spirits are supposed to reside.
