    Baoulé culture, Ivory Coast
    First half of the 20th century
    Wood, iron and pigments
    H.: 15; L.: 6; Thickness: 5 cm

    This monoxyle stirrup is carved in the shape of a horseshoe and animated on the upper part of an anthropomorphic figure with characteristic features: an oval face with a slender chin, a shell hairstyle animated by four braids with geometric incisions, eyes underlined with pigments kaolin whites, brow ridges leading to a long nose and a cup-shaped mouth. The neck is punctuated three times with geometric scarifications, the cheeks are also marked with these facial designs.

    The stirrups were used to hang the warps from the loom.
