Attié female statue (N° 19858)

This fine-deed statue has a body free of ethnic scarifications. The ovoid head, with an internalized appearance, is haloed with a braided hull. The curved arms are extended from hands to shells resting on the rounded hips of the legs firmly anchored. Glossy, dark patina.
The Attié are a lagoon population, located in the east of Côte d'Ivoire, and belongs to the large Akan group. The latter also includes the Ebrié and Abouré. The artistic achievements of these different ethnic groups thus possess a similar aesthetic. The Attié, of Akye-Fo, "the holders of the blade", are divided according to the north and the south. This ethnic group lives mainly from palm oil production and the harvest of yam, banana and maize. Artifacts made by the Attié ethnic group were used in ceremonies and festivities. They were then sometimes gold or covered in gold.
