Igbo Female Ancestor Figure


This female figure, seated and smoking upon a stool, is adorned with representations of ivory bangles at wrist and ankle and strings of large beads around the neck. Complex scarification marks are shown on the face and body. This figure probably represents a female ancestor, and would have been employed in ceremonies connected with the matrilineage.

The Igbo numbering from seven to ten million occupy the plateaus of southern Nigeria.
