Baoule Asie Usu figure


Spirit and aesthetics in African art

Remarkable African monoxyl statue with very finely carved elements. The patina is very dark: it was obtained over the years by the application of palm oil during the cult of the spirit of the bush who had settled there. Indeed, traditional figures such as this one bear, among the Baoulé, the name of Asie Usu and are intended to welcome a spirit of the bush. Flattered by the sculptural quality of the room dedicated to it, the spirit will protect its owners. Otherwise, it will bring bad luck and bad luck to them.
