WOOD,PIGMENT, HEIGHT 80CM
This statue shows a richly adorned woman with intricate and elaborate hairstyle, smoking of a large community pipe. In Igbo tradition, prominent males and females were often portrayed sitting on a chair. The actual base is hollowed out, so the statue could have also been used as a helmet mask, but this is unlikely because of the extremely heavy weight of the piece. Prominent scarification marks adore body and face.
