WOOD, PIGMENT HEIGHT 80CM
This rather large statue is predominantly painted in white, some of the paint has come off with time. White is the colour traditionally used to depict death which obviously includes any ancestors in Igbo sculpture. The figure displays a typical elaborate hairstyle and prominent scarification and other details. Quite unique is the mirror held in the left hand and the glass insert on top, both indicating superior wisdom and the ability to see hidden agendas.
