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.

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.
