BAULE, Barkcloth Pounders, Ivory Coast

These Baule pounders been vetted as being authentic, with 1-3 showing significant signs of use and age.

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.

The Baule use these to pound barkcloth.

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