Stunning pair of heavy stone altar statues of the Yoruba from Nigeria. Two images show a married couple. The man is holding an offering bowl. Traces of offerings are evident; dried blood, feathers, fragment of blue pigment and possibly some white kaolin. In reality so much more beautiful !! with an astonishing appearance .... Heavy statues, together above 10 kilos  I cannot indicate the age, but without any doubt with a considerable age. Please take a good look at the photos! I would be happy to send more photos in a Wetransfer file upon request!

Height: male figure 29 cm, female figure 25 cm
Weight: male figure 5625 grams, female figure 5372 grams
Origin: Nigeria Dating: Unknown but of considerable age

Due to the weight of 11 kilos, the statues have to be sent in two separate boxes!
