This majestic and lovely African bronze head was given to my neighbor by a former boyfriend many, many years ago. She would like a serious collector of African art to have it.

The head is open in the back, by design. There are fine lines across the face. The expression is serene and very beautiful. The head-dress is quite ornate, with a rosette in the front and a braided columnar frontpiece with a bulbous tip. I am not sure if it is male or female but perhaps with the braid it is a woman.

It is quite large at 16 1/2 inches tall to the tip of the head-dress, and very heavy at about ten pounds. The bronze has a lovely patina. The condition seems very good with only a tiny flaw in the manufacture at the bottom rim at the front (see photos).

We are not experts in this, but it seems to be an Ife Olokun lost wax head from Nigeria. Please write to us if you think this is incorrect.

We hope you will enjoy it!
