TERRACOTTA, HEIGHT 29CM
I found this head displayed on church steps in central Cape Town in 1978. I was aware of the traditional Ife terracottas in this particular style, but was unable to establish the exact whereabouts of this particular piece. It stood out like a real treasure in between all the other tourist items displayed. Until now I don’t know if it is an old master piece or just a good replica, but it has a special place in my collection.
