Senoufo culture, Ivory Coast

Wood and nuts

This monoxyle stirrup is animated on the upper part of an anthropomorphic figure. It is pierced at the temples to allow the suspension of the tool.

The stylized face stands on a thick, cylindrical neck while the body of the pulley forms an arc of a circle.

The stirrups made it possible to hang the warps from the loom.
