EWE Venavi (Ghana)
EWE Twin Figure (Ghana)


29 cm.


The EWE live in a coastal area which extends through Ghana, Togo, Benin, until the Nigerian borders.

They practise the cult of the twins, very similar to that of the Yoruba, and it is in this context that these small statuettes were crafted, in very varied styles, which sometimes depend on the influences of their neighbours (the Akan from Ghana, the Yoruba from Nigeria, etc...).
