BACKGROUND
Two major styles of terracotta statue have been attributed to the Mali empire – the first is the Djenne style. Its name is derived from the archaeological site of Djenne-Djenno and it includes figures dating from the 12th to the 15th century which all have naturalistic rounded features and facial scarifications. The second style, known as the Bankoni style, is centered around the modern town of Bamako and is characterized predominately by figures with elongated features dating from the same period.

Painter Fred Uhlman words - Most of the artists I admired, Picasso, Modigliani, Deraini, to mention only a few, had collected African art and had been profoundly influenced by it. Shortly afterwards I bought the Baule Fetish and the Baule bobbin which are still two of the finest pieces in my collection. It is easy to see why I bought them and why from that moment I have never stopped collecting. The head of the bobbin or heddle - pulley which is after all only a functional object for the purpose of weaving seemed to me then and today as beautiful as a Greek goddess. The fetish moved me as deeply as the bobbin by its silent tragic dignity and its air of profound meditation.
