Yoruba pole (N° 22892)

Veranda pillar composed of carved figures: a mother figure embodying one of the many female goddesses, the earth goddess Onilé ("owner of the House"), guarantor of longevity, peace, and resources, and linked to the powerful Ogboni society among theYoruba Egba and Ijebu. She could also symbolize Orunmila, goddess of divination. She is revered by members of the powerful Ogboni, or Osugbo, Justice Society. The lower figure evokes Esu, or Eshu.
Polychrome patina, erosions.
The kingdoms of Oyo and Ijebu arose following the disappearance of the Ifé civilization and are still the basis of the political structure of the Yoruba . The Oyo created two cults centered on the Egungun and Sango societies, still active, who venerate their gods, the Orisa, through ceremonies appeal to masks, statuettes, scepters and divination supports. The slave trade helped spread Yoruba beliefs across continents. Centered on the veneration of its gods, or orisà, the Yoruba religion relies on artistic sculptures with coded messages (aroko).
