Title: Ibeji

Material: Wood and beads

People: Yoruba

Country: Nigeria

Description: Ibeji is the protective Orisha of twins. The
name derives from "IBI" - first born & "EJI" - two. The Yoruba
consider twins to be good luck. They believe they share one
soul between them. If one of them dies, the statues are made
to become the abode of the departed. Through the intermediary
of the ibeji statuette, the Yoruba mother of a deceased twin
could maintain a bond with her child.
This piece is very worn and weathered from age and use, and has had some spaces filled.
