  • A splendid and rare female from Offa, in the Igbomina tribe territory

    This is a very particular type of Ibeji from Offa. The face and hairstyle are higher than the entire body and base, which is not often seen in the Ibeji. The high hairstyle has a very particular shape, the nose is very short, and on the abdomen there are raws of scrifications in the form of straight and reversed triangles next to each other. The body is covered with an ample camwood patina of yellow-red color. A strand of multicolor beads are strung around the neck. The hairstyle and both eyes are painted with blue Reckitt pigment.

  • 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...
