Pair of Ibeji Females Igbo Ora

$2,800.00Price
  • A splendid pair of female/female Ibeji from Igbo Ora, in the Ibarapa tribe territory.  

    This outstanding pair of Ibeji feature high ridge hairstyles with Reckitt's blue applied for the blue coloration.  Reckitt's was first introduced to the Yoruba early in the 20th century as a staining option in lieu of indigo, which was very expensive and time-consuming to create. The face is carved with three horizontal scars on the cheeks and three vertical scars on the forehead. Strands of handmade beads are strung around their necks, with differing sizes.  Beads have been traded as currency in African for millenia and continue to be symbols of wealth. The Ibeji have also blue and red beads around the waist and red beads around the wrists.    An excellent pair.

  • Ibeji Art offers an unconditional guarantee of authenticity on the Ibeji sold because they are always accompanied by the Expertise of Fausto or Mauro Polo. READ MORE...
