This ibibio female wood figure represents female figures, ranging from naturalistic to highly stylized. This history is visible through the various forms of headdresses worn in Ogbom dances among the Igbo, Ibeku, Olokoro, Oboro, Ngwa, Ozu-Item, and Ibibio peoples. Each of these dances presents its own specificities.

Culture and Traditions

The Ibibio people are one of many smaller ethnic groups that occupy the South-South geo-political zone or Niger Delta region of Nigeria. The Ibibio people are reputed to be the earliest inhabitants of south southern Nigeria. It is estimated that they arrived at their present home around 7000 B.C.
