SEE Ooni's Gift to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives (PHOTO)


His Imperial Majesty Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja II) the Ooni of Ife gifts the Pennsylvania House of Representatives with one of a kind art work from Ile-Ife, Nigeria.

Between ca. 1200 and 1500, Ife developed into a flourishing artistic center. The discovery of Ife’s now famous naturalistic bronzes, terracottas, and stone sculptures successfully challenged European assumptions about the nature of African art and initiated significant findings that Ile-Ife was indeed ahead of the world.
