Lobi statuette Burkina Faso Wood and pigments... - Lot 36 - Binoche et Giquello
Lobi statuette
Burkina Faso
Wood and pigments
H. 12 cm
Superb miniature statuette, truncated at the waist, the head adorned with a finely chiseled crested headdress, the face projected forward, the delicate features bringing out an intense expression. Scarifications appear under the deep dark patina. The body retains traces of red color.
The Lobi are masters in the art of sculpting small effigies or amulets, combining the raw power of the Lobi aesthetic with the delicacy imposed by the small size. Our copy is a strong testimony of this.
