Ikenga Figurine, Ibo culture, Nigeria Height: 41 cm.

Intriguing and powerful Ikenga statuette from the Ibo of Nigeria. The style is quite rare, like the face represented on the belly, it represents the head of a beheaded enemy. The sculpture is direct, brutal like the figure it depicts. The body is asymmetrical, strong and well-composed. He is holding a sword in his hand, a loincloth still remains around his waist. Dense wood, cracked on some parts, but it remains solid. The feet are damaged but also remain solid. Please note the inventory number on the backside:N°1980.50.3. This is a beautiful, ancient and authentic piece. Around 1930.

Provenance:
- Jos Humblet, Brussels.
