Benin Bronze Horseman Prince


Oranmiyan was a prince who was the first to bring horses to Benin. He lived in the 13th century. According to the legend, it was this warrior prince who arrived from the ancient Yoruba capital Ife. He was the founder of the second (and current) dynasty of Benin.  He is wearing all his princely regalia and his multi-layered hat is magnificent. The root of the word Benin comes from the word prince Oranmiyan used for his new place - ibini.
