A very finely crafted wooden sculpture or headdress from the Eket peoples of Nigeria, West Africa. featuring a wonderfully exaggerated female form accented with kaolin clay pigments an geometric designs.I rarely see such images available from Nigeria anymore, This example was in a Philadelphia collection for several decades.Famed African Art dealer Bernard de Grunne’s statement that the Eket Ogbom “is the most radical and abstract representation of the human body in Sub-Saharan art" is evidenced in this classic example. The statue measures 18.5 inches tall.


In Good condition.
