African Tribal Art - Heddle pulley, Senufo, Ivory Coast


This classic hornbill heddle pulley is from the Senufo of the Ivory Coast. A beautifully carved example with a shiny and encrusted patina from much use, it measures 5-3/4” high by 2-7/8” wide. The Senufo refer to the hornbill as “the master of birds” due to its evocative beak and intelligence.  Ex private Los Angeles collection. #9115  $1600
