Single Female Ilorin
A superb and old female from Ilorin, in the Oyo tribe territory.
This statuette is a very well carved and elegant Ibeji, with the body covered with a beautiful camwood dark red patina. The hairstyle is also very artistic and very well carved, consisting of five plaits, four outside and one central, raising from the top of the head. Scarifications are present below the navel to the hip and on both side of the face. A very appealing classic Ibeji.
