wood, old place of repair, base A beautifully carved Baule heddle pulley depicting a fine carved bird on top. Baule peoples and their neighbours to the West, the Guro, are famous as weavers, and are known for their fine indigo-and-white cotton fabrics. Like many other carved objects used in everyday activities among the Baule, these pulleys were often embellished for the weaver’s delight.
