A finely carved Ibeji from the village of Abeokuta, in the Egba tribe territory.

The known carver is Makinde, from the Adugbologe family, son of Oniyide. Makinde is a well known carver, appreciated by African art collectors for his modern style and carving skills. He signed his work at the bottom of the base with a particular sign.  Makinde died in 1950. The statuette has a beautiful hairstyle and a carved apron on the front. The Ibeji wears around the neck an interesting bead necklace. African Art works from known carvers are particularly desired by collectors and demand an higher commercial value.
