A very interesting and rare pair of Ibeji male / female, work of the carver Akinola, son of the carver Faleye and active in the first half of the XXth Century in the village of Joga Orile, Egbado tribe.
The identifying element of this pair, a form of “signature of the artist”, is represented by the shape end appearance of the Ibeji’s hands, joined to the body at the height of the hips, with the thumbs detached from the other fingers, forming a sort of rectangular socket.
Both statuettes have an ancient natural brown patina. The crested hairstyle is high and artistic and colored with blue Reckitt paint.
This rare and very well carved pair is worthy to be included in a top Ibeji collection. Mauro Polo
