133 - Kneeling man on an upside down pot

Classical Nok position, left knee on the ground

Very beautiful representation of a man kneeling on an inverted calabash, sign of respect and devotion, looking towards the ground with great humility. His two very thin arms are folded on his chest ; his legs, however, are powerful and very well shaped. His beard is neatly shaved, he has a goatee tapered into a point, a necklace and a rope belt, ankle bracelets and a penis case ending in a long snake tail. His left foot is broken, his forearms, wasted.
