Descripción
Marido Mistico Estilo Beoumi - Madera dura, Paño - Blolo Bian - Baoulé - Costa de Marfil
2ª mitad siglo XX - Buena

Provenance: African art gallery; African masks.

The Beoumi style is pretty rare in auctions, yet they are charming because of their slender and refined figures and their very recognizable, expressive faces.

As an additional charm, this one still wears its loincloth.
Lots of details in this figure. For example, the base is very finely worked.

Last point: mystical husbands are rarer than wives.

Also, contrarily to what is often written, these are not representations of ancestors or of spouses from the afterlife but representations of a parallel world.

Shipped via Colissimo, with track & trace.
