PAIR OF IBEJI FEMALES EGBA | IBEJI ART

An ancient and interesting pair of Ibeji male from Egbe village (Yagba tribe). This classiC typology of Ibeji, characterized by the position of the hands touching horizontally across the abdomen, has a presence in all the most important collection of Yoruba art. Both statuettes show an interesting old natural patina with a small coverage of brown camwood. The somatic traits of one of the Ibeji are very worn, due to the caresses of the mother’s hand. The hairstyle is high and very artistic, with traces of blue Reckitt paint. The Ibeji are enriched with necklaces and iron armlets.                                                       Mauro Polo
