Standing Ancestor Figure – Ivory Coast

Standing Ancestor Figure

Region: Ivory Coast
A large, standing female figure from the Attye people of Ivory Coast. The Attye belong to a group of small ethnicities, the so-called ‘Lagoon people’, on the eastern shore of the Ivory Coast. The sculpture shown here embodies the typical style of the Attye: mostly female figures with rounded, sturdy forms, oval faces with sharp-edged, long noses, slit eyes in the form of coffee beans, and a small mouth.
