Book Description
Nine hundred years ago, a dozen villages of the Yoruba people, who lived in the section of Africa now known as Nigeria, came together. They were led by a divine king to carve the city-state of Ife out of the forest. In the cooperative atmosphere of the city, the arts thrived. The Yoruba became well known for wood carvings, terra-cottas, and the finest bronzes cast anywhere in the world.
