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 Art
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.
