Omschrijving
Bedelaar aap fetisj - opofferingspatina / hout - Baule / Baule - Ivoorkust
1e helft 20e eeuw - Vintage - gebruikt met zichtbare tekenen van slijtage

Figurine representing a “Gbekre”, a bush spirit, holding an offerings cup in the hand.

Powerful head with a summit crest projected forward, it features a fierce mouth and impressive teeth.

Also, the surface 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.

Wonderful crusty patina of wear.

These cynocephalus baboon monkeys, with strong dynamics, tailless and humanoid, were both feared and admired at the same time, and played an important role with Baule imagination.
