Potomo Waka: fronds and slingshots in African art

African slingshots are found among the Baoulé in African art. These are figurative objects, the neck is often endowed with one or more representations of heads or a complete body inspired by their artistic corpus.

The Baoulé are renowned for the quality and finesse of their sculpture, composed mainly of statues and an extremely rich variety of masks, but also many everyday objects or related to ceremonies. This small authentic art object is here surmounted by a ringed head as well as multiple faces below.
