Superb Baoulé pulley bracket from the Ivory Coast Republic, topped by a dignitary’s head with a beautiful sensitive expression, gentle and interiorized expression.

Its headdress is carefully and meticulously arranged with linear zigzag grooves. Concentric scarifications along the long neck as well as the nape. Very originally positioned the mouth, is only visible from below the face, small beard. Other scars above the eyes forming arches.

 

Hard wood, old used brown patina and shining red.
