Idoma Crest mask (N° 14029)

The Idoma live at the confluence of Benué and Niger. There are 500,000 farmers and traders. The neighbourhood and thus the influences of the Igbo, those of the Cross River and Igala ethnic groups, have led to stylistic borrowings, and great tribal similarities. The royal lineage members of their society oglinye , glorifying courage, use masks and crests during funerals and festivities. They also produce fertility statues with bleached faces and exhibiting incised teeth. Janiform crests are usually displayed at the funerals of notables. Dark grainy patina. Slight cracks and abrasions.
