ASK THE EXPERT - FEB 2017
Jan would like to know the origin and the degree of rarity of this Ibeji.
This is another Ibeji whose facial traits are almost completely missing, due to the caresses of the mother during a long period of time. It was carved in a workshop in Oke Adan (Anago) and it is RARE. It is classified in the Encyclopedia the Ibeji on the pages 222 and 223. The most interesting characteristic of the male Ibeji from this village is the long apron, inclined towards the bottom. This Ibeji is a nice statue. It only has a loss on the bottom frontal part of the apron.
