IGBO, IKENGA FIGURES, Nigeria

All of these Ikenga figures have been vetted as authentic.

Ikenga
is the embodiment of traditional male leadership and power among the Igbo. The shrine expresses their personal spirit, chi, a source of strength and courage. Ikenga visualizes the authority of leadership; the ability to sit in judgement and be a warrior-chief. The horns refer to the powerful and agressive nature of the ram.
