The piece is a golden brown (vintage) painting of a female figure with elaborate scarifications, attire and beads. It shows a trace of indeginious Nigerian art and culture.
The piece is inspired by the story IFE) Ife(aka Ile-Ife) which was an ancient African city that flourished between the 11th and 15th century CE in what is today Nigeria in West Africa. Ife was the capital and principal religious centre of the Yoruba Kingdom of Ife and prospered thanks to trade connections with other West African kingdoms. Ife is particularly famous today for the magnificent metal sculptures its artists produced which include serene-looking human heads so masterfully crafted that Europeans once wrongly considered them the work of another civilization.
