Stirrup / pulley of Baoulé loom of Ivory Coast in wood - height: 20cm - width: 20cm - depth: 6cm
The Baoulés are one of the most important African ethnic groups in Côte d'Ivoire. Their name reflects their origin: according to a legend, Queen Aba Pokou guided her people in exodus to the regions of the gold mines during the 18th century; she had to sacrifice her son to the god of a river so that she could cross it. The people were therefore called the "Bauli", which means: "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 executed creations that are among the most elegant African objects. The Baoulé created masks, statues, statuettes, fetishes, looms pulleys, canes, ointment boxes, carved doors, as well as gold and bronze jewelry worn during the main ceremonies.
