Emblem of a Chief Baoulé

RR007402

New product

This bird, eagle, eagle, buzzard or falcon, could be the top of a district or village chief's emblem. Executed in hard red-brown hardwood, a variety of faux mahogany, the sculpture is very refined by its engraving covering all the surface, a technique used for many ceremonial objects such as flypickers' sleeves, fans, power sabre handles coming from the regions between Ghana and the country of the Baoulé in Côte d' Ivoire.
Originally, these objects were covered with laminated sheets of gold, glued to the wood in egg white and then "smoothed" with bitter stone.


Dimensions with pedestal
Height: 19.5 cm.
Width: 6 cm.
Depth: 12 cm
Weight: 0.600 kg
Origin: Ivory Coast
Museum: Paris - Musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac
