LOBI, Ironwork, Burkina Faso

The Lobi, better known for their wood figures, heads and stools and terracotta vessels, make some objects from iron. These forged animals and bells exhibit the technical skill and artistry that Lobiblacksmiths brought to their work. They would do the smelting to get the iron from iron ore, then heat and hammer out both the tools and weapons used and these ritual objects.
