Gwacoulou tells the legend of preservation of peace through the transformation of three pairs of twin girls into the three stones of a traditional fireplace and their mother in its pot (“the canary”). Nowadays, these stones are still one of the pillars of African tradition in Bambara community. They remind us, through their symbolism, marriage and discretion, fraternity and solidarity, friendship and assistance. Between African tradition and modernity, Gwacoulou expresses the evolution of both mystical and behavioural beliefs.
