Unique artistic representation of an Ibeji couple.
Both have a hairstyle with an extremely high shape, decorated with embedded aluminium dots, a headband and belly button as well as pupils made of copper. The diamond shape of the eyes is repeated in the scar tattoo on the abdomen and the breasts of the woman. The male figure has nipples made of embedded aluminium.
The back side is also artistically formed; the back of the head, the arms and the bottom are shaped like arches.
