Superb  african Baule I Coast ,Vintage wooden colonial figure, hand carved  wood and painted/ polychrome pigmented. 38 inches tall  by 3.5" w & 2.25" D

These colonial carvings, or colons, were  commonly made during periods of occupation and were especially common in west Africa. Clothing was added to appeal to mostly the Christian Europeans. They represented either the colonizing Europeans or settlers, or African middle class in western attire. Colonial statues reached international popularity after WWII and after decolonization.
