Shrine Figure

Lobi, Burkina Faso
20th Century

Standing on thick powerful legs this fine Lobi figure is sculpted by a known hand. Possessing great attention to detail; such as the naturalistic face with beautifully carved features like the eyes that are circularly outlined; and a nose that is elegantly conceived with a long bridge and large lips. Carved from hardwood with a deep aged patina from decades of use.

This figure stands 5.5 inches tall.
