In various regions across Africa, a tradition once prevalent - and in certain areas, still observed - involved the intricate art of scarification, where patterns were delicately etched into the skin using razors. These marks serve as powerful symbols, signifying the transition from youth to adulthood, embodying profound rites of passage within these communities.


The IFÉ heads stand as evocative sculptures capturing the essence of these cultural imprints, representing them not as mere scars, but as timeless tattoos etched into the very fabric of existence.
