Female Figure

Baule, Ivory Coast
Late 19th/Early 20th Century
Previous Collection: NYC Private collection acquired from Alfie Sheinberg 1971

This Baule figure was carved by a very accomplished artist. From the coiffure to the base, all of the elements come together to create a powerful yet beautiful sculpture. The back of the figure is faceted which is uncommon with Baule figures, they usually are more 'round' in conception. The patina is exceptional; finely worn from generations of handling. In excellent condition.

This figure stands 11.75" tall.
