Ibeji

A very beautiful female Ibeji with a washed face and Rekitts Blue applied to her typical Oyo hairstyle. The base is not tiered as in most Oyo Ibeji. There is an old repair to the feet. Black coconut disks and white beads identically decorate her neck and waist, and there are beads on both wrists.
19th / early 20th century
Oyo
cf. This Ibeji is similar to Oyo pieces but more elegant and the face is a little different.
