A remarkable Senufo maternity of the Boundiali region, about 100 km westwards from Korhogo, seated on a four-leg stool, holding two children on her knees, an elaborated, striated hairdress beneath a fascial plane with bulging eyes and a small pointed mouth, showing the teeth, the tapering, big breasts framed by rectangular shoulders, ending up in open work arms; various brownish to occre patina. There are only three examples of this sculpture/carver known in official publications.

Over the years we collected two other sculptures of the same carver or its workshop from the Boudiali region.
