This slender figure is particularly captivating because of her elaborate, finely crafted hairstyle with thin braids hanging freely and the rich decoration with scarification marks.
According to the Baule's sense of beauty, this figure is the idealised representation of a woman.
She is the embodiment of a "spouse from the otherworldly world", whom the Baule believe that they can influence the fortunes of the living.
