Beautifully stylized bronze head of King Oba from Benin City in Nigeria. Since the 16th century, the Benin have been known for their high-quality bronze sculptures. That tradition still continues. Beautiful head with a refined expression, a lot of depth and a lot of detail in the face but also on the headgear and the border underneath. Aging patina and light traces of use are visible.
