Lobi artists create attractive figures out of wood or metal to please the spiritual powers that protect them. This metal object, masterfully crafted from a single rod of iron, uses minimal means to express grace and movement.
The object will appear in iAfrica: Connecting with Sub-Saharan Art, an exhibition organized at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, October 3, 2009 through April 5, 2010.

This is a really good synth for a relatively small amount of images.
The combination of a black background with a rough textured surface == synthing magic.

Great job!

This is great! Do you have it embedded on your web site with other similar pieces?

It's not on our website yet -- I wanted to show Photosynth to some coworkers here to generate ideas for our iAfrica show. But if you see other art at artsmia.org that you'd like to see synthy, drop me a line and I'll see what I can do.
