  • Original text by Fausto Polo, 2013, translated to English from Italian

    An unusual single female from Iperu, located in the territory of the Ijebu tribe.

    The Ijebu tribe has given birth to several well-known carvers - such as Awolowo Adelaku, Onabanjo, Onamosun, and the most celebrated Thomas Ona - but the name of this Ibeji's carver is currently unknown.

    It is a very well carved figure, with all the sculptural features typical of the area. It has a reddish old natural patina with some traces of camwood. The hairstyle has clear and ample traces of indigo powder, a natural dye of vegetable origin, which was, like the patina of camwood, an important form of tribute and veneration from the family to their Ibeji.
