?baule ivory figure
- Hi, I am new to the forum and to African arts.
Can anyone help with this figure, said to be a baule monkey:
Could the Ivory be recent and artificially aged?
I'm wondering whether it was made for the market or could it possibly have been used within the Baule community.
A couple of people have told me that they think it may be a hybrid.
If not Baule, does someone know what tribe it comes from.
