The Lengola art is influenced by Chamba to the north and Lega to the east. This very fine example demonstrates stylistic lines of both groups, with a heart shaped face in a diamond shaped head. Meanwhile, the knees are carved going outward in a classic Chamba/Mumuye style. The figure is righteous, with old encrusted patina and a fine, classic expression for the corpus at this period.
