According to the Yoruba worldview, Ife is the place of origin of all humankind and is therefore of particular religious and political importance.
The Ife region of Nigeria is famous for its naturalistic bronzes, terra cottas and stone sculptures. This image of a princess is inspired by these ancient artistic works.
Today this same area is considered one of the most artistic of the continent.
This striking pendant measures 7/8 inch wide by 1-1/4 inch long. Made of vitreous enamel,
each pendant is assembled by hand, so please allow for some variability.
Equally beautiful as jewelry or as an art element in a shrine or assemblage, this unique
piece is conservatively priced for such elegant craftsmanship.
