Chief staff Baulé - SOLD OUT

The objects of power within African tribal art

In African art, and more, the baoulé body, the sticks are the symbols of the royal authority associated with the leaders.

This stick of command carries at its summit a feminine figure elegantly carved.

The handle of the staff is adorned with faces reminiscent of the masks produced by the Baoulé sculptors. The character could be the representation of old or, in fact, the characters should be ultimately aesthetic, to be seen from a mind that would agree when it would be good, with great dignity and with his subjects. This type of regal object was used during ceremonies and sometimes during dances. This is the remarkable piece that will delight any lover of unusual objects and refined pieces.

Socket included with this object.
