Made in Africa: Portrait of an Ife Ruler is now open in the Living Cultures gallery. The exhibition makes a stunning intervention in the gallery and highlights the remarkable royal portrait-like cast in all it’s splendor.
The head is accompanied by other pieces of Yoruba sculpture from the Living Cultures collection and a stunning cast by the contemporary artisit Taslim Martin.
As the exhibition will only be with us until very early February 2010 I highly recommend that you come and see it sooner rather than later!
