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.

Het gekochte kavel deed niet aan de omschrijving zoals aangegeven in de veiling.
Het Masker was veel kleiner dan de maten die werden aangegeven in de omschrijving.
Fast delivery, well-packed. Size of object I bought, however, was markedly smaller than stated in the description.
