This is a lovely Carved Wood Old Senufo Rhythm Pounder from the Ivory Coast. The rhythm pounder (deble) from the Senufo people of the Ivory Coast was once a crucial prop in both commemorative ancestral rites and in initiations of adolescents to adult society; it was also a benevolent symbol of fertility and a conduit to the departed. The few known male and female rhythm pounder pairs are thought to represent the primordial couple, referred to as 'Pombibele', which means "those who gave birth. Typically it is female figures are represented and it has been speculated that these single figures are one of a
pair. These pounders were traditionally used at funeral ceremonies for Poro society members.
Would be a wonderful addition to your home or collection.
