Early 20th century - Good condition

A Lobi couple 'Bateba Phuwe" with fine patina from the Lobi poeple, Burkina-Faso.


Made of Wood, pigments, rope and crusty sacrificial patina
H: 19 cm (7'4")
Weight 230gr
Provenance: Private Belgian Collection.

The carver presumably lived and worked in the area bordering on Ghana. The works of this carver display a strongly cubist form of expression.
This Lobi couple is composed of geometric forms. One is reminded of the works of Picasso, Braque, Brancusi and other artists active in the first half of the twentieth century. This couple was used by a healer or diviner to combat sorcery or as aids in helping clients, varied dark-brown patina with encrustations.

Sent by registered and insured mail: International express parcel (Colissimo international) or registered Bpost.

Thanks for looking!
