Masterpieces of the British Museum: The Head of an Ife King from Nigeria.

Picture of Masterpieces of the British Museum: The Head of an Ife King from Nigeria.
In this DVD a group of experts interprets this 800-year-old head with a beaded crown and plume. It is one of the most famous objects in the British Museum’s African collection (indeed, I have seen it myself and it is splendid). It has helped change European assumptions about African art. But who is it of? Who made it? What is the significance of the elaborate headdress?
