BAULE, Objects, Ivory Coast

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.

Intricately carved spoons were prestige objects for the Baule. Intricately carved staffs were also prestige objects and were often used as dance wands.

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