|Baule, Côte d'Ivoire|
As this beautifully crafted male figure illustrates, Baule figures can be among the most elegant and carefully designed pieces in Africa. This piece, carved from a single piece of wood, shows the classic Baule introverted facial expression; a long and sculptured beard and equally finely detailed coiffure. The piece shows evidence of use in areas of where shrine materials were applied, illustrated by remains of pigment and discoloration from applied libations.
