The Baoulés are one of the most important ethnic groups in Côte d'Ivoire. Their name reflects their origin: according to a legend, Queen Aba Pokou led her people in exodus to the gold mining areas during the eighteenth century; she had to sacrifice her son to the god of a river in order to cross it. The people were called "Bauli", meaning "the son is dead".

Baoulé artists have produced many works of art and are still very active today. Thanks to their sense of stylization and their attention to detail, they performed creations that are among the most elegant African objects. The Baoulé have created masks, statues, statuettes, fetishes, combs, chairs, loom pulleys, canes, slingshots, slingshots, ointment boxes, oracle boxes, divination boxes, carved doors, beaded necklaces, and gold and bronze jewelry worn during the main ceremonies.
