Ife Pixels

Welcome to phase 1 of the "Ife Heads" project; Ife Pixels is a collection of 11 pixelated derivatives created by Kwame. Derived from his pen and pencil drawings on paper, these characters are inspired by the ancient and wealthy city-state Ile Ife located in what is today Nigeria, West Africa. The Ife people created magnificent, detailed sculpture heads and busts from brass, bronze, copper and terracotta. Often depicting their rulers as well as people from the city, Ife is also highly regarded as the spiritual center of the Yoruba tradition and spiritual practice.
