This picture is a representation of a family portrait of the King of Benin along with his wives.
The Benin king is known as the Oba of Benin. Benin’s culture is as rich and diverse as its landscape.
The Oba of Benin is the traditional ruler and the custodian of the culture of the Edo people. He wears a simple flowing gown with a cape and a plain cap covered in woven red coral beads.
His wives also tie beautiful wrappers made from a variety of fabrics, wear the Ewu-ivie, a beaded cape or blouse and adorn their necks with coral beads known as Ivie-uru and the Ivie-obo on their hands along with beaded earrings.
This portrait will be a great art collection to your home.
