Lobi Statue (N° 24758) Deposit sale

This Lobi African statuette "Bateba forms a picket top. Cut with efficiency, it represents a rectilinear subject, receptacle of a spirit, whose spherical head offers salient features. Ocher brown patina.
Among the Lobi of Burkina Faso, these spirits transmit to the soothsayers the laws that the followers must follow to receive their protection.
Sculptures in wood or copper named Bateba (of any size, figurative or abstract), adopt different attitudes that symbolize the particular power or talent that the spirit uses to protect its owners. These figurines are placed on the tombs, in a dark corner of the owners' house, along with other sculptures embodying different spirits.
