I have one of these books ia a permanent part of my reference library as a source of valuable information.
312 pages, 11" x 9". 2 maps, glossary, bibliography. Features (mostly in color) 35 masks, 31 figures, 4 monkey sculptures, 5 Gong Mallets, 4 mouse divination vessels, 15 gold objects, 41 decorative objects, and many field photos. Published by the Yale University Press, Yale University Art Gallery, in cooperation with The Museum For African Art, 1997.
A great collection of superior Baule art, fascinating field photographs which include the art in context of tribal dance and ceremony, along with an interesting and informative text. Not a coffee table book, but a real reference book on the wonderful tribal art of the Baule peoples of the Cote D'Ivoire which gives a flavor or the lives, culture, ceremony and art of a facinating region of West Africa.
