A heddle pulley such as this adorns traditional narrow-band looms and facilitates the weaving process by separating warp threads. Like most African artifacts designed for use in everyday life, it was created to be beautiful and displayed with pride. For the woodcarvers, the presence of a figure displayed on a loom served to advertise their skills, since weavers worked open-air at marketplaces. We love the simplicity of its design, as a sculpture to display.
