Benin Bronze Ife head from my collection of African art. This piece was purchased direct from an African supplier whom I dealt with for years and trusted for his expertise and honesty. Most 20th Century African art was created to be sold and not used by the tribes. My supplier says this head was crafted in about 1940 + or minus. I will leave the dating up to experts who handle African on a regular basis. I could write lot about Benin art here however pages of information are available on the internet and I use that source for definitive descriptions and folk lore. Over the years I have found African art my favorite collecting area along with Chinese porcelain. Looking at cultural changes in Africa and the turmoil there I feel some of these pieces will not be available in the future . International shipping will be expensive because of the weight and insurance required.

Approx 18 1/2" tall x 9 " deep x 8" wide.

Weight 9 1/4 LBS
