Mid 20th century, reasonable condition

A Senufo Deble, Northern Korhogo region, Ivory Coast,
Central Korhogo region, the openwork arms carved beside a slender body, a pointed navel, the elongated neck supporting a an oval head with pointed chin, framed by semicircular ears, wearing a cap-like coiffure with the stylized beak in front; aged reddish patina, the base of the statue is partly eroded by the function of the sculpture, which was used like a hammer to open symbolically or more or less directly a hole in the thick adobe wall of a hut, to carry the dead body of a woman - it´s a female sculpture - outside for funaral purpose.

"In the literature is only described the pounding on earth and the swinging over the ground, but not the described function, which is the reason for the desolat conditions of many déblé bases". WJ
