Superb Metoko tribal statue with a look worthy of the greatest pieces of Western contemporary art.
This is a figure originally linked to initiation rites similar to those of the Bwami among the nearby Lega.
The character stands upright, the body entirely striated in the length and is the subject of a game of contrast brought by the pigments.
