Early to mid-20th century - Good Condition. Provenance Mr. Alphadjo Zagamor

Baule heddle pulley
H= 23 cm on a custom made stand.

This fine figural Baule heddle pulley was in use on a narrow strip loom, this pulley was both functional and aesthetic. It eased the movements of the heddles in separating the warp (see image) threads to allow the shuttle carrying the weft thread to pass through.
The pulley also called attention to the skills of the sculptor who carved it, advertising his availability to undertake commissions to carve other figurative art, such as masks or shrine figures.
Provenance Mr. Alphadjo Zagamor got it in a private collection in Paris. He told me these beards are inspired by the kings of ancient Egypt.
Clear signs of use ( see pictures)
