"It has been often noted how Lobi sculptures from the same workshop and district appear on the western market, (and now on the internet ) in waves from Africa and then disappear into storerooms and collections for years or decades. There may have been other examples to arrive in Europe before 2007, from Binlares workshop but the first "wave" appeared in Segovia, Spain, and Berlin, Germany, after that date. Since that time the largest number (around 80 sculptures ) have been photographed and documented by Tribalartforum, this includes some research into this Family workshop and an interview with Lupite Pale (born 1938) about his father Some Binlare, who who died in 1981 and is said to be the originator of this sculpting dynasty.
