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)

Note:
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.
