Vested with the ideal attributes of Baule concepts of beauty, (stylized coiffure, a light skin, painted high arched brows, keloid scarifications, the perfect oval face, a long ringed neck, perky breasts and youthful symmetric body), this carved wooden female figure is a contemporary version of the famed Baule blolo bla. The Baule peoples believe that everyone has a spouse in his or her previous existence who can affect good or bad fortune. This figure represents a man’s wife in the other world who, like his wife in this world, must not be neglected. Men and women keep their otherworld spouses in shrines and honor and propitiate them.
