A fine male Ibeji' figure from the Yoruba peoples of Nigeria, West Africa, ca. 1930's – '40's. This beautifully sculpted example is 10” high and is carved from wood, with deep, old, darkened, shiny surface, as well as light encrustation embedded in the carved headdress. In very good condition with fine patina from extensive handling and minor insect damage on the headdress.
