Beautiful sculpture of a spiritual wife, Blolo Bla. The Baoulé people in Ivory Coast believe that every human being in the spiritual world has a wife/husband At birth, one of the spouses leaves for the human world and the partner remains in the world of spirits. These sculptures are made to assist the partner in the human world, to avert mischief and to improve an unwanted condition. Such a sculpture represents the ideal of beauty of this people: stability and serenity, inward orientation. This is a beautiful one with very refined hairstyle and beautifully stylised scars. There is an age crack in the wood (see photo); This crack is already old and the wood no longer works, is stable.
