AFRICA BAULE DOOR COWBOY Ivory Coast Statue Carving

Baule Africa Door Carved Statue ~ This fine example of a Baule Cowboy door ~ This quality of carving is rarely seen today reflecting a tradition rapidly in decline. The wonderful original paint shows ware but has a great patina ~ Unlike most of the Baule masks and figures, Baule doors were not secret and were always on view. The elegant low relief depicts Animals, heads, crocodiles, , snakes, birds, tribal figures, other objects and abstract patterns with balanced asymmetry, Often used as doors to inner rooms, they do “not always” show the wear of exposure to the elements. Doors like this were considered prestige items and often were carriers of proverbs. The door is well carved with much attention to detail so prominent in any good Baule carvings. This door, with its Cowboy motif, is reasonably flat and can be 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 some age use and insect holes. Our Door pivots on the two short posts carved into the top an bottom of the door. Measures from pivot points 54” High. X just under 24” Wide. Fantastic Vintage 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.
