Burkina Faso Lobi Female Figure


A Lobi female figure with raised arms, finely carved wood with a rich dark patina.The Lobi people place these figures with raised arms in shrines or in houses in order to host and ward off invisible evil spirits (‘Thila’).

With the same gesture Lobi women also dance at funerals in order to keep evil spirits away from the place of the ceremony.
