2nd half of the 20th century - Very nice condition

Ifé bronze figurine - BINI EDO - Benin, Nigeria
Dimensions: Height 62 cm ; Weight 15 kilograms.

In African art, the Ifé art is characterised by a beautiful balance of lines, a blatant realism, and with a serenity which seems to emanate from kings or queens.
This figurine is very richly decorated. We can distinguish braids, but also little bells. The face is perfectly smooth, on each side we can notice fringes which are finished off with little bells. The grooves around the neck are considered as eminent signs of beauty for the YORUBA, even nowadays.

Of course, the inside was hollowed.

    Awful experience. The seller did not send me the mask I had bought but another object, which I had to send back at my cost. After more than three weeks he has NOT refunded me.

    Commande envoyée à Marseilles avant d'arriver en région parisienne. Alors que l'adresse est clairement indiquée sur le site.
    C'est dommage.
