Baule Monkeys (N° 19421)
"Singes Baule" is the first book dedicated to these sculptures so far removed from the refined and delicate artistic canon of Baule masks and effigies. These frightening cup bearers harboring invisible forces both evil and beneficial served their community through diviners. Based on a remarkable set of statues from the Africarium Collection, this book studies the creation, morphology, and use of cup bearers in their ritual and cultural context.
