AFRICA, COTE D'IVOIRE
ATTIE TRIBE

Carving, female figure,
with skirt and upper-body tunic.
The Attie people are a smaller tribe, declining in size and cultural influence.


This figure may represent an ancestor or an imaginary lover extant beyond the spiritual divide. It is uncharacteristically modest for an African tribal figure

ca. 1930s.
