|Baule figure, Ivory Coast
ex private US collection
I've always been drawn to figures with
different arm and hand placement, and I
especially enjoy figures with their hands in
their pockets. The figure has a lot of
character and has some age. It has a nice
facial expression, and I like some of the
details on the carving, especially the pleats
in his shorts which are depicted in the front
and the back.
