PAIR OF IBEJI MALES ABEOKUTA | IBEJI ART

An uncommon and old pair of Ibeji males from an unknown workshop in the village of Abeokuta, Egba tribe.Both statuettes show many interesting personalized details, such as an inlaid apron knotted at the back, a blue Reckitt colored cylindrical shaped headdress and some tribal ornaments as beaded laces around the neck and pendants from both ears, the quiet sympathy expression on the faces, very well carved in the smallest details.The Ibeji have an interesting natural brown background patina, which highlights the clearly defined carving features.                         Mauro Polo
