Alain and Françoise Chaffin. L’Art Kota: Les figures de reliquaire. Meudon, 1979. P.122. nº40

This sculpture, with its extreme schematization of the human body, serving as a guardian of ancestral relics, is imbued with an unmistakable modernity.

This work is stylistically linked to the Obamba sub-group whose creations were at the origin of the so-called ‘classical’ form.
