Contact Dealer For Price
As king of a large tribal community, this man would have been highly regarded and respected among the people of his community and feared by the enemy. The bronze figure stands tall with all the necessities required by a king. The robe is wrapped carefully around his waist while his wealth is demonstrated by the large variety of jewelry which adorns his body. The elaborate headpiece however, is the crowning glory of his attire, clearly defining his role within society, alongside the two symbols of his reign which he holds in either hand.The bronze itself has been molded and pitted to exemplify the distinct characteristics of the skin while still allowing the king to look his best. The facial features have also remained true to life, with intelligent eyes and a full, expressive mouth. As a whole, the king has been represented at his very best, demonstrating his influence and his power, remaining immortal not only to the tribe but to the rest of the world as well. - (PF.4001)Ife Style Bronze Sculpture of King - PF.4001Origin: Southwestern Nigeria Circa: 19 th Century AD to 20 th Century ADDimensions: 38" (96.5cm) high x 17" (43.2cm) wide Collection: African Style: Ife Medium: Bronze
