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.

    The seller is not trustful. He sent a lot who did not corresponded to the photo. After my complaint he promised he would send the right one but he never did.

    Men stuurt twee maskers op, het tweede blijkt een cadeau te zijn maar als je iemand een geschenk geeft dan mag het niet gebroken zijn en dat was het wel. Lijkt mij zeer raar!!!
