These Lobi figures were created to protect the people. The figure is not carved after a person, but after a spirit. They were usually placed on family altars. It protects the whole family from sickness and bad luck. It could also be used for divination and was passed on from father to son. The Lobi figures are now placed on a stand. New pictures are coming soon.
