BAULE, DOORS, Ivory Coast

Baule doors share the careful execution usually characteristic of other Baule sculpture. Unlike most of the Baule masks and figures, however, the doors were not secretive and were always on view. The elegant low reliefs depict figures, heads, crocodiles, birds, objects and abstract patterns. There is precision and balanced asymmetry in these permanent displays of Baule artistic skill. Often used as doors to inner rooms, they do not show the wear of exposure to the elements.
