Description: Vintage handcarved and handpainted colon statue from the Ivory Coast and in excellent condition. It’s been well-preserved, with very few scratches and areas of discoloration. Some pictured. Very lightweight and roughly a foot tall. Painted with vegetable-based paints.

About: Most colon statues were made by the Baule tribe of Ivory Coast, a former French colony and are an enduring reflection of the complex relationships between the colonized and the colonizers. “Colon” is the French word for “colonist” and these statues were slender, colorful and lightweight caricatures that represented black artisans’ perceptions of whiteness, class, different vocations and their own radical imagination.
