Lobi Art at the Hotel Libya

I’m not a big fan of Libya or of African art, but we visited an exhibition of Lobi art held at the Hotel Libya (financed by Burkina Faso’s best friend, Qaddafi). The Accor Hotels website says it’s called the Hotel Sofitel Ouaga 2000 but it does say Hotel Libya on the façade.

The exhibit was OK. I don’t know enough about African art to appreciate it but I did like the beer pots.

I was a little shocked to see one pornographic statue labeled “bêtise” which my favorite translation website claims is “hanky-panky” in English. Hanky-panky indeed.
