Ref: sf-2051 Height 33 CM Product DescriptionBaoulé fetish monkey. Old piece over 50 years old. In general, the Baoulé agricultural world venerates a number of agrarian deities. These are always represented by characters half man, half beast. The monkey is one. His posture is always the same: he stands in the attitude of a recipient of offerings. His legs are bent and between his hands is still a cup, which he places under his chin. These statuettes embody the monkey genius, Gbékré, a formidable and feared character, who can cause phenomena of possession. They are kept on the outskirts of the village and are considered the receptacle of the devastating force of the animal. During sowing, harvesting, or simply to ward off evil spirits, the head of his cult (probably the Mbra cult) will pour different materials into it as offerings: porridge of millet, eggs, blood, meat... These offerings explain the crusty appearance that most of the time covers these statuettes.African art, African maskafrican art african tribal art arte africana afrikanische kunstPart delivered with an invoice and a certificate of authenticity.In general, the Baoulé agricultural world venerates a number of agrarian deities.
