Elegant Baoulé Heddle Pulley - Ivory Coast

Used in pairs on a traditional narrow-band loom, heddle pulleys are functional objects used to ease the movements of the heddles while separating the warp threads and allowing the shuttle to seamlessly pass through the layers of thread. Like many other carved objects, these pulleys were often embellished for the weaver's delight.
