Single Ibeji

Yoruba people, Nigeria

Igbomina region, Omu Aran village style

Early 20th Century

A wild Ibeji of good size and fine, original, patina of use. I love the scarifications all over the body and the Jean-Paul Gaultier like "Bomshell breasts" (from the name of a dress designed in the 1980's) 

Wood, metal and leather bracelets.

Good condition.
