Anthropomorphic Baoule music stick (N° 5897)

Ex Belgian African art collection.
Anthropomorphic music stick made in a light wood giving a honey patina.
The top of the stick probably represents the royal couple. Each of the characters has their hands affixed to their stomachs. The top of the headdresses meets at the top to become one. It ends at the back forming a half circle.
The handle is decorated with horizontal and vertical motifs. It is fitted with a perforation at the bottom to allow a cord to pass through it. The Baoulé live in the south-east of Côte d'Ivoire. They are part of the Akan group. One can notice that their craft is not scary. The living conditions of the Baoulé are certainly among the best in the whole country and this can be read on their serene masks and sophisticated statuary.
