FY I about the Baule bead which is widely used in contemporary jewelry :The Baule people created a series of kingdoms and city-states that progressively occupied the entire forest region all the way to the Gulf of Guinea. During the eighteenth century, the Queen sacrificed her own son in order to cross a river. This sacrifice was the origin of the name Baule; for “baouli” means “the child has died.” These are hand-made brass beads from the Ivory Coast. A repeating feature throughout Baule Beads is the regular parallel grooves that run throughout each of the beads. Historically, these beads have been used as weights to measure gold.The Baule people created a series of kingdoms and city-states that progressively occupied the entire forest region all the way to the Gulf of Guinea.
