An Ode to the Benin Kingdom
The Benin kingdom is home to ancient tribal art masters that have produced some of the finest African art, including the Benin bronzes, which are on display in prominent museums across the world. His father was a contemporary to Ben Enwonwu, who infamously sculpted a portrait of Queen Elizabeth on her highly anticipated first visit to Nigeria in 1956. The Edo tribe is home to great mathematicians, a fact which in part explains how ancient African artists carved stunning 3D figures out of bronze with precision and accuracy, without even calculators at their disposal.
