Depicting familial ancestors. Among the Igbo, the relative scale of the figure denotes its degree of importance in the culture. They were kept in the same shrine house among other figures belonging to that lineage. Their care fell to older family members. Periodic offerings of kola nuts, wine, and palm oil were given to the ancestors through the intermediary of the sculpture. These figures are heavily coated in camwood and white clay and the details of the carving are obscured by its encrustation.

Dimensions for female figure on the right: Height: 50" x Width: 10" x Depth: 10"
