Peoples and cultures of central Côte d'Ivoire 

Beautiful and rare Baule maternity carved in coloured wood with the original pigmentation. This African statue representing maternity in the most careful features of the Baule stylistic corpus presents a flat face with balanced forms. The symmetrical body movement shows her arms plunging along the body, landing on her hips. The protruding buttocks are covered with a period loincloth, the bulging calves underline the Baule aesthetic features. The position of the child in the back is surprising, the finesse and details are remarkable.
