Baule Statue (N° 24224)

African figurative art is reflected in Côte d'Ivoire by effigies of ancestors or by anthropomorphic figures embodying a spirit of nature.

As for the features, they form a reminder of the masked faces that intervene during the dances associated with traditional cults. br> Heterogeneous patina, residual grainy encrustations.

br>The Baoulé live in the South East of Côte d'Ivoire. They are part of the Akan group. During the 18th century, united under a single banner, this Akan people was, according to legend, guided by Queen Aba Pokou to the region of gold mines in eastern Côte d'Ivoire to settle there. . The unity of the Baoulé declined following internal struggles as well as the gold rush since the arrival of the Europeans to lead in the end to a multitude of small disunited villages, directed by councils of elders.
