Description
power picture (1) - Wood - LOSSO - Togo
1st half 20th century - Good condition, used with some signs of wear

This is an old and beautifully patinated Losso figurine.

It may have been part of a shrine, belonging to a notable or a fetishist, as part of family protection.

Acquired in 1975 from the collection Jean Willy Mestach - Brussels

It's a special figurine that I've cherished for 44 years.

I offer it without price limit and hope to make a real lover of primary forms happy.

This is a wonderful example of the raw object.
