Lobi Male Figure, Mali
height 25 1/4in (64.2cm)
Alfred L. Scheinberg, New York
Private Collection, New York, acquired from the above in 1984
Proportionally well carved with an essence of movement, the figure stands with slightly bent knees, counter-balanced by the curvature of the torso and accented by the figure's stoic and serene face; fine light brown patina with ancient encrustations.
