Lobi Terracotta Pot

| /

Terracotta vessels are characteristic of the Burkina Faso area.

The reliefs on some of them usually indicate their origin in the Lobi Ethnicity, an ethnic group that lives in the Gaoua and Diebougou regions of Burkina Faso.
Revered as sacred water vessels, African Lobi vessels were used in temples and homes throughout Africa throughout the 20th century.
