A Guro Heddle Pulley

Ivory Coast.

Shaped as a 'Calao bird' and black patinated. The Baule peoples and their neighbors to the West, the Guro, are famous as weavers, and are known for their fine indigo-and-white cotton fabrics. Used on the 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. These pulleys were often embellished for the weaver’s delight.
