Early 20th century - finely patinated- ex-Robert van der Heijden

This fine Pair of Ibedji's is coming from the Yoruba tribe in Nigeria, -Egbe, Yagba and dated early 20th century
Height: 28 cm or 11 inches

Our exclusive Art may be viewed or picked up in David Norden's Buy African Antiques Shop in Antwerp.

PROVENANCE: Robert van der Heijden collection, Netherland.

This unclothed pair of two male twins standing on a decorated round base with triangular motives all around. Also horizontal scarification's on the cheeks and in the pelvian area. Elongated faces. Interesting are the dots around the eyes.
According to the legend the Ibedji's twin's represent Abiku a monkey that entered the belly of a pregnant women who would give birth to a child that would not be able to live long, because her husband chased the monkeys from the village. The Orisha Ibedji dolls are there to protect the twins, but only if the wooden statues and the monkeys are feed well.
