20世紀上半葉 - 懷舊－已使用，連同可看見的穿戴痕跡
The Baule people believe that every married man and every married woman has their own spiritual partner in the ‘other world’. These are called ‘Blolo Bian’ (male) and ‘Blolo Bla’ (female). With these ‘spirit spouses’ in the shape of such figures it is possible to communicate, ask them for advice, discuss problems, etc. The present ‘Blolo Bla’ is carved from hard wood and was originally dyed black. She stands firmly on a round plinth, displays a carefully arranged Baule hairstyle and scarification marks typical of the tribe. The sculpture shows cracks due to age, as well as traces of scuffing on exposed areas and edges due to protracted use.Lagoon People influence.
