Description

A Baule wedding port, high aged and extremly thinwalled, at the bottom two knifes beneath a panther, the symbol of royal origin, in the middle a couple seated on stools, framed by bracelets, the signs of marriage, and a whip, which is in the Baule traditionan a sign of male power. There are many copys and replacements of this famous and high symbolic object of Baule Art, but old exemplares, probably of the first part of the 20th century are extremly rare. The age is determinated by a dense heavy “Lenke” wood carved on two thin plates connected together with metal brackets, and the origin of a a royal family of the central Bouaké region.
