Statue of colon - Baoulé - SOLD OUT

The representation of Westerners in traditional African art among the Baoulé

This is probably a figure representing a settler based on clothing and the red color applied to the character.

It is nevertheless an interpretation in the classical Baoulé style: we find the scarifications on the body and the face as well as the aesthetic canons of the Baoule corpus.
