Ancient Maternity Statuette - Baule - Ivory Coast

Among the Baule, there are many kinds of sculptures named Waka Sran (wooden persons), including two kinds which are particularly widespread and documented.
- the Asie Usu which embody the spirits of the bush.
- and the Blolo Bian or Blolo Bla, which are representations of spouses from the hereafter.
But there are also other figurines, which are clearly less documented, other votive sculptures, related to social events such as the coronation of a king or a traditional chief, judgement figurines, healing statuettes, fetish figurines (Komians), etc...

These figurines do not fall into those two aforementioned categories and are commonly spread within the literature about the Baule (Augé, Féau, Vogel, Boyer). Too simplistic, those categories should be brought up to date.
