Shrine Figure

Lobi, Burkina Faso
Early 20th c.

Shrine figures in the form of birds are quite rare. This wonderful and surreal sculpture of a bird with human legs has a very “modern” presence. Its surface is very old and worn and has a thick and encrusted grey patina from numerous ritual libations it received over time.
