Baule Fetish of Large Eyes

This protection figure has large round eyes framed with powerful eyebrows - watching around and taking notice. The large ears also mean that this fetish listens well and pays attention. Closed mouth can signify composure when faced with danger. There are cowries  and numerous small pieces of cloth, tightly wound and attached to the "garment". The action of tieing or knotting on a fetish convey the notion of important issues that have been resolved. Tieing is often interpreted as an act of taming.

 Provenance: This fetish has been in the Raskin Private collection for many years.
