African Statue Bete Female Figure Mali

$625.00

This is a wonderful African Carved Wood Female Statue Wearing Beads Around Her Waist from the Coast of Mali. The Bete have carved elegant statues, stylistically influenced by their neighbors the Guro. Bete statues were usually carved as standing figures displaying set-apart legs, an elongated torso with square shoulders, an elongated columnar neck supporting an oblong head with an incised mouth and a high-domed, smooth forehead under a helmet-like coiffure. Male and female figures are displayed in shelters or shrines to represent the founders of the community. They incarnate the conceptual ideal of spiritual perfection and moral strength and its connection to physical beauty. Other smaller statuettes may have been carved to represent spouses from the other world, a tradition inspired by the Baule. A lovely statue to add to your collection or home.
