Ibeji collection

One of the best loved objects collected by serious lovers of African Art is the Ibeji. The figures have an extraordinary range of sculptural expression. An Ibeji is used as a container for the soul of a dead twin. The Yoruba believe that the souls of twins are connected to each other and that a dead twin must be looked after exactly like a living child in that it is fed, bathed and spoken to, thus ensuring the survival of the other twin
