A CHARMING PAIR OF IVORY COAST POLYCHROME WOOD SCULPTURES OF DRESSMAKERS
Ivory Coast, Baule People, second half 20th century
One male and one female figure, each seated behind a showing machine, polychromed in the African colours of red, yellow and green.
H. 33 x W. 18 cm (each)
Although these two sculptures were made for the tourist market, the carving is of very good quality, made with care and the portrayal of the two dressmakers is charming.
