1st half of the 20th century - very good condition
Bronze IFE commemorative head - BINI EDO - Benin - 52 cm ; 12 kilograms.
In African art, 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 head is topped by a conical headdress which is very richly decorated. It is composed of braids and 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.
The inside is hollowed out course.
