BAULE, METAL VESSELS, Ivory Coast


These hollow cast vessels stand well on their three knob bases.

The Baule are one of the Akan peoples. They moved west to the Ivory Coast more than 200 years ago and adopted sculptural and masking traditions from their neighbors, the Guro, Senufo and Yaure peoples.

We recommend Baule: African Art Western Eyes by Susan M. Vogel (Yale).
