LOBI
Figure 114 
16" high x 2.5" wide x 10.5" deep
$600

This figure has been vetted as being authentic with signs of tribal use and age.

This unusual figure, which from the front or back seems to be leaning on a stool form, from the sides appears to be running. Since most Lobi figures, even those with expressive gestures, are still standing, the implied movement of this piece is inventive and uniquely animated. The cracks are old and stable.
