IJO, ART, Nigeria

The horizontal headdresses worn by the Ijo (or Ijaw) people are some of the rarest in Africa. They are used duriung water-spirit festivals prior to the rainy season and often depict aspects of marine life: fish, rays, aquatic fantasy creatures and occasionally boats. The large fetish panel is one of the most impressive of African costructed objects.
