The “Inverted Doubles” of the Sculptures of Baule African art.
Some sixty ethnic groups populate Ivory Coast, including the Baule in the centre, Akans who came from Ghana, a people from the savannah who practised hunting and agriculture, like the Guro from whom they have borrowed the ritual cults and carved masks.
These sculptures belong to a type of figurines destined to be used by soothsayers as a medium tool.
