Statuette/fetish representing a ‘Gbekre’, a genie of the bush, holding an offerings cup in its hands.
Powerful head with a sagittal crest projected forward, it features a fierce mouth and impressive teeth.
The surface, also on top of the monkey’s head, is covered with thick crusty sacrificial patina which reflects the power of this amwin, ‘object of power’ from the initiatory society of which it represented the authority.
Beautiful crusty patina of use.
This cynocephalus baboon with strong dynamics, tailless and humanoid, was both feared and admired, and played an important role within Baule imaginary world.
