A fragmentary female Lobi sculpture with a slender torso, arms carved close to the body, a globular neck surmounted by a head of the same shape, a three-parted headdress, partly encircled eyes, framed by horseshoe-like ears, a prominent triangular nose and small pointed mouth, extremely heavy hardwood, which is the consequence of an oxidation process of many decades, also called "ironwood". A large age crack at the left side of the sculpture. Remnants of encrustations, which could be a long-lasting sacrification period.

This sculpture was posted on the same shrine as a sculpture we sold recently and is known as a "Lobi-figure with glasses".
