Mid 20th Century - Excellent condition

Female Baule figure (bloblo)

This elegantly carved female figure represents a sculpture made for a spirit wife. The left side of the face shows a traditional repaired small crack. And the base of the figure shows some damage due to use. All by all still in good condition.
These figures represent an ideal of man or womanhood, embodying not only physical perfection, but social, moral and intellectual achievement. Spirit spouse sculptures can be seen as a kind of opposite sex alter ego. The Baule are one of a number of African groups who believe that before birth, human beings all had Blolo bla (spirit wife) and Blolo bian (spirit husband) spouses in the other
world who can influence their lives.
