Maternity Lobi statue from Burkina Faso, evoking the complicity of the mother with her child, a geometric figure, perhaps of sikiré kambiré or his entourage.

Hardwood with a customary honey patina, we know of some very close maternity statues with the child on the hip.

The mark of the tool can be found throughout the sculpture.
