Baule Mask-46.2/19.7 CM. This striking face mask with headdress was made by the Baule mask, the most powerful tribe mask in the Ivory Coast and among Africa’s greatest mask artistic creators. The Baule live across the Ivory Coast area, and have an economy based primarily on sedentary agriculturism. They have thus been able to build up a considerable political and economic stronghold, which has in turn given rise to a strong ritual and artistic heritage. Their own creation story relates to an ancient migration, in which the queen was forced to sacrifice her son in order to ford a mighty river. So upset was she that all she could say was “baouli” (the child is dead), thus giving rise to the tribe’s name. 46.2/19.7 CM. An original patina covers the item.

African Art – 2 Antique Statues – Congo – 12 Inch Pair. Estate find – from home of world traveling couple. It was reported to me these had been in the family home as long as any of the family could remember. Two marvelous pieces – one male and one female. Male has beadwork and some of the beads appear missing. I’ll also assume the male at one time had spears or other items in hands which are now gone. Truly you don’t see pieces of this quality often and I do hope they are proudly displayed in their next home. Please review detailed pics.
