IGBO STYLE
Head 19
19.5"  high x 7" wide x 6" deep
$500

Despite its patina this head shows no evidence of age or use and was probably made to be sold.

Note the visible repair of the crack on the front of the base and on both sides at the back of the face, where the cracks were carefully filled with long pieces of wood shaped to fit. The basketry bas still has a rubber strap attached.
