Experts: MM.A of Monbrison and P. Amrouche
Reference: p.38.39.40

Wood, Plant fibers, bakélite.Magnifique representation of the couple together all the criteria
of Baule sculpture sitting on a stool exquisitely decorated
geometric patterns, the two characters are face.On Presumably it is a royal couple by the presence
very many scars, tattoos in the neck,
extremely elaborate hairstyles, typical Baule;
man sports a goatee as the attribute of the Egyptian gods
the stool is finely crafted with a remarkable precision in
the line and detail of ornamentation;
The attitude of the two characters, arms along the body, clears
an atmosphere of great wisdom and serenity.
Provenance: ex al. Armand.Auxietre
