Mid 20th century
The Baule people believe that every married man and every married woman have a partner in the ‘other world’ of spirits, that is in the ‘bush’ or in the afterlife. It is possible to communicate with this imaginary partner - called 'Blolo Bian' (male) or 'Blolo Bla' (female) - in order to ask for advice or discuss everyday problems. The present 'Blolo Bla' is made of wood . It has a finely executed, typical Baule hairstyle, a beautiful face, characteristic scarification marks and a prominent navel between her hands.
Dimensions: 41x 9 x 10 cm
