    Female STATUETTE
    Baule, Ivory Coast
    First half of the 20th century
    H. 33; L 7; Thickness 6 cm

    Made of monoxyle wood, she is shown standing, her arms short, bent so that her hands rest on her lower abdomen. Her chest is drooping, her umbilicus protruding. She rests on generous, slightly bent legs, ending in two flat feet, almost inscribed on a circular base.
    Her stylized face is topped with a large, finely-worked shell-like composition of oblique incisions, and the nape of her neck is animated by a body scarification.
