The Urhobo people settled North of the Niger River Delta in Nigeria, and live from fishing and farming.
They believe that the forest spirits called ‘Edjo’ influence their everyday lives. Masks are worn by young men and used during ceremonies related to the Edjo spirits.
The masks and sculptures can be identified by their typical forehead raised scarifications.
