AFRICA DOOR BAULE Crocodile Africa Ivory Coast Tribal Carving

Baule Door Africa Ivory Coast (Cote D'Ivoire) Wood Date: Early Twentieth Century This fine example of a Baule door most probably dates from the first half of the Twentieth century. The condition of the carving and surface points to its being used as an interior door of a house pivoting on the two short posts carved into the top an bottom of the door. This quality of carving is rarely seen today reflecting a tradition rapidly in decline. Doors such as this were considered prestige items and often were carriers of proverbs. The door is well carved with much attention to detail so prominent in Baule carving. This door, with its intertwined crocodile motif, is flat and is wired to hang on a wall, mounted on another door or mounted as a freestanding sculpture. This outstanding example of classic Baule carving would be a centerpiece of a collection. Wonderful condition and shows ware,chips,cracks, age use and insect holes. Measures 25” Wide and 54” High. Fantastic Old Baule Door. ~~~ ACCEPTED PAYMENTS: CASH, CHECK, POSTAL MONEY ORDER, Visa, Master Card, Paypal , I will email you with payment address to send checks or Money Orders, Cash.
