Description:Ibeji, female statuette, standing. If a twin dies the death is marked by the commissioning of a carved wooden figurine from a sculptor. Known as an 'ibeji', the figurine is of the same sex as the dead twin and is treated by the mother with all the love and respect that the twin would have received if alive, including being fed, washed and adorned. This ibeji is the larger of two collected from Nigeria, early 20th century. Detail of feet, hair, genitals, hair in topknot. On a small stand. The photograph shows a male and a female ibeji. They were collected together from Nigeria in the early 20th century. They are probably not a pair, but they illustrate the similarity of form although they have been carefully sculpted as portraits of either sex, with the hair, face, genitals clearly depicted. The female is taller than the male. The ibeji are the most common carved religious images found in northern Nigeria, and represent the twin-spirits known as 'orisha', although not in the same sense as the other named ones. [show more]
