Senoufo loom (N° 14487)

In Ivory Coast, sculptures intended for everyday use, and apparently the most ordinary, had to meet aesthetic criteria. Furniture, ornaments, utensils, fabrics, are pretext for a refined artistic expression on the part of sculptors. These objects were not intended for ritual use, so the choice of subjects remained varied. This pulley is decorated with a female figure with mats pulled back around a central crest. The sagging chest is associated with motherhood, fertility. The long neck is adorned with parallel streaks.
Satin dark brown patina, ocuse residue. Wire remains on the reel.
Mainly farmers, the Senoufo group lives in a savannah region that covers southern Mali and Burkina Faso, and northern Côte d'Ivoire. They include about 50 sub-ethnic groups. They speak a Voltaic language Gur, Gour, like the Lobi and the Koulango.
