This Baule figure represents ‘Asie Usu’. Asie Usu spirits live in the countryside. They are malicious, however, if they are honored in the appropriate form, they will bring rewarding harvesting and hunting. On occasion, they express desire (through village diviner) to be associated with a specific person. A statue will then be carved and placed in the home of the designated individual, where is will be worshipped and given libations of chicken blood & egg, often giving it an encrusted patina.
