Sculpture - Baule Figure (Spirit Spouse) From the Ivory Coast Very old. Measuring 38cm high. BAULE COLON Cote D Ivoire COL 38-20 STATUE MATERIAL : Wood . Pigment . Shells . Beads ORIGIN : Baule . Cote D Ivoire DIMENSION : 15.5 in ( 39 cm ) Blolo or spirit spouse figure, from the Baule people, Ivory Coast, West Africa. This sculpture is carved and painted wood. It measures 4 inches in width by 15.5 inches in height (10.1 cm by 39.3 cm). It is in very good condition, showing wear commensurate with use and dates to the late 20thcentury. A fabulous collector’s item, coming from an important mid-West collection of African art, it is guaranteed authentic and would make a fine addition to any collection of African sculpture or African art in general. The Baule (Akan people) of the Ivory Coast in West Africa believe each person has a mate in the spirit world - a place where all spirits originate and return. The existence of the otherworld mate is typically encountered by young adults who face a specific problem such as infertility or the failure to find a mate. A diviner may determine that the problem can be solved by marriage to a spirit spouse - in which case a representation of the spouse is carved. Each sculpted spirit spouse has a distinctive personality and exerts a powerful influence on the daily life of its physical mate. A man will own his spouse, the blolo bian, and a woman her spouse, the blolo bla. Once the marriage between the physical mate and the spirit spouse takes place it becomes the physical mate’s obligation to give offerings to the spirit spouse. In turn, it becomes the obligation of the spirit spouse to cure whatever problem caused the creation of the marriage in the first place. When the figures are used, they are private objects. Normally stored in a private room of the house, spirit spouse statues are rarely shown to anyone. This blolo bla represents a mythical figure called Mami wata. She is considered a divine form of beauty that can provide healing and insure fertility -a great companion for a young man struggling with sterility. Once the problem which caused the marriage is resolved the sculpture of the spirit spouse may be released into the marketplace. These statues serve as potent reminders that aided by faith and determination forces in the unseen world can cure problems in the physical world. Please ask for shipping cost
