    Pougouli/Lobi culture, Burkina Faso
    Circa 1900
    Wood with red patina
    H. 20.5; L. 5 cm

    Anthropomorphic statuette in monoxyle wood with red patina, carved according to the stylistic characteristics of the culture: she stands on angular legs, individualized from each other, with protruding knees, a short bust with a rounded abdomen and small umbilicus, a marked and individualized buttock, shoulders, chest and arms forming a single line in relief. The face features circular ears, sharply tapered eyes, a short nose and a small mouth with lips set apart from each other.

    Bateba figures are objects of divination, regarded as intermediaries between the human and spiritual worlds. They are placed in family or diviner-sculptor altars.
