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.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
