Pair of Ibeji Males Ajasse

$4,900.00Price
  • A splendid pair of male/male Ibeji from Ajasse, in the Igbomina tribe territory.

    This outstanding pair have a triangle, an emblematic Islamic symbol featured on many important ibeji, carved on the chest and on the back. They feature pronounced genitals and extensive scarification on the face and on the bottom of the abdomen. They have visible teeth with the missing central one, an design feature typically used by the Ajasse carvers. They have separated feet and wear high sandals, which as a rare feature has become a very desirable element for collectors  Both have a beaded necklace around the neck and metal bangles around one arm. Very nice and extensive red color camwood patina.

  • 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...
