Baoule Animal Sculpture (N° 18108)

Rare naturalist sculpture depicting a ram, symbol of fertility and vigor.
The animal's head and tail are wrapped in ropes, giving an interesting texture to the coat. The ram is also intended for ritual sacrifices in many ethnic groups. Among the Baules, the ram is honored as a guarantor of prosperity. A replica is carved to transmit, during a ceremony, the strengths of the living animal.
Locally shelled kaolin crusty mingling. Desication cracks.
Ancean restorations of twisted horns using metal staples.
(Ref.: Black African animal sculptures G. Massa)
