Ifé head in bronze THAT REPRESENTS THE QUEEN-MOTHER, Iyoba Idia.

He fought alongside his son in the war for the throne, overcoming his enemies. Iyoba Idia wore a chicken beak hairdo covered with a net made of coral beads. It is one of the most famous images of African queen. Faces are never repeated, they are individualized as well as adornments. Excoriations are identity marks of edo culture and royal lineage.
