Yoruba Ibeji Statuette

Email for shipping outside of continental US

The Yoruba people, numbering over 12 million, are the largest nation in Africa with an art-producing tradition. The ibejistatuette is a minor art form. The great frequency of twin births and the heightened infant mortality rate have found sculptural expression in the Yoruba territory through ibeji figurines. Twins are believed to be the children of Shango, the god of thunder and lightning. They are also thought to possess supernatural powers and share the same soul.

This figure came to us from a private collection.
