The iconography of the monkey lies between human and animal, village and the bush. Vogel (1997: 238) explains: Baule monkey figures "combine human and animal traits in such a way that it is nearly impossible to separate them, and they have the prominent teeth and boxy muzzle typical of the masks. Both also receive sacrificial offerings directly on the wood sculpture, and are associated with the bush."
