    Very original representation of a griot in the form of a man standing on a stool. He holds an oliphant in one hand and a drum in the other.
    He still wears a piece of cloth at his waist. Note the excessiveness of his ears: a griot hears everything and knows everything!
    Wood with an old, slightly crusted patina.
