According to the Baule beliefs,mbra live in the bush and occasionally make contacts with human beings. They could be male or female, have colorful personalities, and often have personal names. Mbra is a Baule cult used for divination. These spirits are mischievous, but, if properly honored, will grant fruitful harvests and hunts. They sometimes express desire, through the village diviner, to be associated with a specific person. A figure is then sculpted and worshipped in the house of the designated individual.

Exhibited at the Fertile, Frightful, Divine show. New Brunswick, NJ. July 2011.
