    Sometimes called "settler", this African statuette embodies the spiritual spouse, sculpted according to the instructions of the diviner. According to Susan Vogel in "African Art, Western Eyes," a figure of this type (p. 255) depicts the idealized spouse dressed in city attire, symbolizing that the spiritual spouse is supposed to have a job in town. Through the worship paid to this spiritual double, the earthly spouse expects to inevitably benefit from its resources, its favors and its protection.
    Ivory Coast is home to around sixty ethnic groups, including the Baoulé in the center, Akans from Ghana, a people of the savannah practicing hunting and agriculture, just like the Gouro, whose cults the Baoulé borrowed and masks.
