________________________

Baule tribe heddle pulley, Ivory coast. Heddle pulleys were used on the west African narrow strip loom. Although they served a primarily utilitarian function they also called attention to the skill of the carver, advertising his availability to carve other art. This pulley has an anthropomorphic finial representing a traditional Baule masked dancer. Very dry patina with old blue paint. Measures 7" tall.
