African ibeji twin carved wooden figures, Yoruba people, Nigeria. Both with striated upswept coiffures and beaded embellishments. These are a pair with the same tatoos on their bellies, male and female.

Superb rich patina. The Yoruba figures on the market are normally never old. Here we have a set of twins, very old, likely from the 19th. century.

Size: 27,6 and 30 cm.

Ex. Collection of Mr. Sunde.
Probably the work of a master carver of the Abeokuta region.
