A large Lobi couple of the Buna region, Ivory Coast, standing on wedge-shaped feet with legs and torso carved in a rough cubistic manner, the male head globular, the female with a domed forehead and a protruding mouth; like many sculptures from the ivory part of the Lobi country, covered with kaolin-sacrifications instead of encrusted chicken blood-remnants, which is more common in the Burkina-part of the Lobi country, we tried to identify the name of the sculpture, but this needs fieldwork in this abandoned region and for sure according of the stylistic elements the carver is passed away since a long time without the following workshop.
