The Origin Of Yorùbá Land


Types of Art:

The arts of the Yoruba are as numerous as their deities, and many objects are placed on shrines to honour the gods and the ancestors. Beautiful sculpture abounds in wood and brass and the occasional terracotta. Varied masking traditions have resulted in a great diversity of mask forms. Additional important arts include pottery, weaving, beadworking and metalsmithing.
