Igbo sculptures are defined by their wide stance, symmetry, and forward stretched hands. With hair styled in hornlike forms, this figure would have likely embellished a ceremonial house, where it would have been arranged with other figures in a central group and around the walls of the interior. Such ceremonial houses often served as shrines to central community figures or founding ancestors.
