    STATUETTE in the style of MOTHERHOODS featuring Ba Fâro
    Bambara culture, Mali
    First half of the 20th century
    H .: 50 cm (approx)
    (arm accident)

    Wooden statuette depicting a woman standing, her arms drawn in front of the body. She exhibits the stylistic characteristics of the crop: a pair of prominent and generous breasts, an angular face with tapered side locks, slender limbs.

    These statuettes embodying Ba Fâro, both the water deity and the mother of men, were used in the annual fertility rites of the Gwan. Women came to worship them or ask them to take action in support of procreation.
