African art > African Maternity > Statue Koulango

Named Pakhalla by the Dioula, the Koulango formed the Loron in the Voltaic territory. The chiefs Dagomba of the Kingdom of Bouna would then have called them " Koulam " (singular: koulango , subject, vassal). Their complex history has spawned a culture no less complex. It is between Burkina Faso and Comoé, in the north-east of Côte d'Ivoire, that their territory extends. An imist fetishistic religion, they address their ancestors and the spirits of nature through sculptures in which the soul of these spirits are supposed to reside.
Female fertility figure depicted sitting on a royal stool, it features a ringed neck and a colorful, vase-shaped crest with coloured scales. An infant heads her breast. Blue and red pigments reveal certain traits.
