Take a look at this beautiful pendant from the Igbo-Ukwu area, 40km southeast of Onitsha in Nigeria. Igbo-Ukwu art is characterised by intricate, decorative patterns, colourful glass beads and images of all sorts of creatures found in nature. The level of craftsmanship is excellent which is not surprising considering that the Igbo-Ukwu bronzes represent the earliest examples of copper alloy art in sub-Saharan Africa. Dated 9th-10th century CE., this pendant is crafted in the form of a pair of eggs with a small bird on top, decorated with bronze flies and featuring wire chains with bells (crotals) at the ends. It is made from from leaded bronze, copper and glass beads. This pendant is seriously impressive!
