Details

The rare monkey figurines created by the Baule of West Africa have puzzled historians since the 19th century. Rough-hewn and fearsome – with jutting jaws and bared teeth – the bowl-bearing monkeys seem quite unlike the Baule’s more delicate ancestor figures. In the first survey to focus exclusively on the monkeys, the authors explore their origin, creation and role in Baule society, and examine their ritualistic function as objects charged with invisible powers.
