1930-1940 - Good condition

Female baule carved from wood, used to honour one's ancestors.

Provenance: The David Abbate (1949-2013) Collection, USA.
Hight: 57 cm, 22,44 inch.

With traces of use and age.

Elongated female figure with ful hips, slight torso and fine hands resting at her sides, with long neck and scarification on the face, torso and back. Oval face with metal decoration on the forehead and stylized features. Detailed hairstyle. With cloth and string of beads wound around her hips. Handsome grayish brown patina, stained by repeated offerings.

Probably made for a diviner, as indicated by the layered and encrusted patina. These figures represent klo sran, or civilized people from the village (as opposed to the wild bush spirits). Therefore, this could represent an important ancestral figure (Vogel 1997: 168).

Can be viewed or picked up at David Norden's African Antiques Shop in Antwerp.

Sold with a written description of the tribe and with the private opinion of David Norden.

Free delivery. Sent by insured and registered mail with Track & Trace.

Please note: seller guarantees this item's authenticity.

  • Reclamar a Catawiki a la menor incidencia. La figura llegó mal embalada y rota!. He tenido que devolverla al vendedor y este "señor" no ha querido reembolsarme los gastos. Mal profesional.
