Bracelet with Lizard Motif, Lobi, Burkina Faso, Africa
W: 19,5 cm (7,7″)
This outstanding bronze bracelet from the Lobi tribe of Burkina Faso was used as currency. It has a remarkable detailed surface with a lizard engraved. The lizard is a symbol of alertness and protection against evil spirits.
Provenance: Private collection from Paris.
Lobi sculpture has been widely collected. Because each Lobi male considers himself potentially an artist a great variety of styles have appeared, ranging from very abstract, rather rough and stylized to very naturalistic and polished.
