Carved statues feature strongly in traditional and contemporary African art. Typically representative of physical beauty and moral virtue, they are treasured tokens.

The Baule tradition of wooden statues is arguably one of the most elegant and refined styles of Africa. Their cultural significance surrounds themes of soul mates, reverence of the spirit world and good fortune in the mortal world.

This couple, from the reigion shared by the Baule and Attie, sport airs of corn above their heads in homage to Attie havest festivals. Seated upon their spiritual stools, they represent prosperity and fertility.
