BACKGROUND
The Baule represent one of the most important tribes of the African West Coast. Their name is testimony to their birth – according to legend, Queen Aba Pokou led her people on an exodus towards the gold mining areas during the 18th Century and had to cross a river where she was obliged to sacrifice her son to the river god, thus giving her people the name Bauli, “the son is dead” During the 19th Century, the queendom disintegrated due to internal conflicts and by the beginning of the 20th century, when the French colonials arrived, they found only a network of villages, headed by councils of venerated men. Baule Statuettes very from small to very large in size. They are usually standing on a base with legs slightly bent, with their hands resting on their abdomen in a gesture of peace, and their elongated necks supporting a face with typically raised scarification and bulging eyes. The coiffure is always detailed and is usually divided into plaits. They are sometimes covered with gold leaf or may represent colonials. Statues were mostly used for two purposes. One was to incarnate a spirit of the bush and the other was to represent a spouse from the other world.

A custom base is included with this piece. It is important to properly exhibit a beautiful piece of art. The splendor of the piece cannot be fully revealed without a correct display. Custom bases can cost a minimum of thirty and up to several hundred dollars depending on its complexity and size. It is very difficult to locate a good stand maker regardless of price, but fortunately this piece will be appropriately displayed and ready for you and your guests’ enjoyment.


Painter Fred Uhlman words - Most of the artists I admired, Picasso, Modigliani, Deraini, to mention only a few, had collected African art and had been profoundly influenced by it. Shortly afterwards I bought the Baule Fetish and the Baule bobbin which are still two of the finest pieces in my collection. It is easy to see why I bought them and why from that moment I have never stopped collecting. The head of the bobbin or heddle - pulley which is after all only a functional object for the purpose of weaving seemed to me then and today as beautiful as a Greek goddess. The fetish moved me as deeply as the bobbin by its silent tragic dignity and its air of profound meditation.
