Bronze cast of a head, Edo, Nigeria
Bronze cast of a human head. The pupils of the eyes have been inlaid with iron. The head is adorned with a reticulated headdress decorated with 4 rosettes. The choker, a badge of rank, here made of bronze would have been made of coral in real life as well as the bands on either side of the ears. The base of this bronze is decorated with ox heads and animals, and celts.
