IGBO, FIGURES, Nigeria

Standing figures represent the numerous Igbo deities or ancestors. They are grouped together in symbolic families and are kept in special houses where they are revered. During annual festivities, these figures are taken out and paraded through the villages. The smaller yellow figures, showing modern dress and style do not represent deities and seem to have been fastened to a structure as puppet-like figures.
