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

This piece is from the collection of Count Simon du Chastel de la Howarderie (1926-2014), obtained through his heirs.

The item will be packaged with the greatest care in a double sided box and shipped with tracking information.
