Bobo, Burkina Faso Heddle Pulley

$ 3,500.00
A Bobo Heddle Pulley from Burkina Faso. This piece is diminutive and concentrated in power. Extensive scarification on face, native repairs evidencing the value the owner placed on this piece and the desire to hold it together.
These pulleys were used to run thread from the top to bottom of looms, and to provide distraction and inspiration to the weaver.
