YORUBA, EPA HEADDRESSES, Nigeria

The works from the Epa association honor deities and cultural heroes at masked festivals. The large base heads, of deceased ancestors, are treated with less naturalism than the superstructure, which depicts and honors mothers with children, warrior/hunters, animals and rulers with their entourages in impressive sculptural form.
