Early 20th century - Good condition

Ancient dance crest, IBO or IGALA culture, Nigeria. Height: 32 cm.

Beautiful ancient dance crest. Its former owner acquired is as an Igala, but for me it seems to be an Ibo.
The sculpture is delicate and alive, it has an intense glance. Beautiful hairdo, with some remaining human hair and nails which serve to attach other elements on it. Scarifications at the level of the ears. A beautiful ancient piece of collection. Around 1930.
The wood is ancient and oxidised, attesting of the antiquity of this piece. There is a large crack on the right side and a little one on the left, Some damages at the level of the nose. Placed on a stand.

A professional invoice, including a picture of the item, as well as the aforementioned description, will be delivered upon request.
