While originating from the African continent, this Ikenga is likely not created by the tribe who invented the design. The tribal attribution indicates the origin of the design, not the object.

IGBO, IKENGA FIGURES, Nigeria

Ikenga is the embodiment of traditional male leadership and power among the Igbo. The shrine expresses their personal spirit, chi, a source of strength and courage. Ikenga visualizes the authority of leadership; the ability to sit in judgement and be a warrior-chief. The horns refer to the powerful and agressive nature of the ram.
