Wonderful life-size large and heavy head of an IFE king in bronze, The King has a crown on the head and very distinctive vertical IFE carvings in the face. IFE was the religious and formerly royal center of the Yoruba people and is located in Nigeria.
This image is of a very high quality and made with the lost wax technique, and is unique in its kind. It has some flaws because of the ancient casting process, which makes it very charming. It has a beautiful dark bronze patina.
