Ancestor Figure - Kulango or Fanti People - Ivory Coast/Ghana - Call for price

The Kulango are related to the Baule and live along the Ghanaian border, as do the Fanti.
Their figures are rare and highly sought after.
The Bondoukou region is an artistic melting pot with a variety of ethnic groups living in close proximity.
Wooden figures such as this are owned by diviners who are said to be able to control the spirits that inhabit the bush that surrounds each village. The spirits are made visible in the sculpted forms which are placed on shrines in the deepest recess of the diviner's house. Sacrifices are made to them, in order to gain the protection of the spirits for the diviner's clients.

Acquired by Ian Allen in the Bondoukou area of the Ivory Coast from the Kulango people.
