This statue represents the Baoule monkey of Ivory Coast. It was made in 2002 with bubinga wood dyed in black and raffia fabric used as cache sex.
Baoule Artists of Ivory Coast have created objects of beauty almost unparalleled in traditional African art, whether by their refinement, their diversity, abundance and the amount of work they represent. Masks and statues of Baoule have generated much interest of Westerners since their discovery and they are considered as one of the most accomplished achievements of African art, which is why these sculptures still occupy a prominent place in any exhibition or study on Africa.
This sculpture is found at the entrance of chiefdoms. It is a symbol that represents the cohabitation.
