=> Bruneaf juin 2013 - Exposition: Ere Ibeji - Dos and Bertie Winkel Collection
Grand Sablon - Brussels
"Among the Yoruba of southwest Nigeria, the rate of twin births is over four times the worldwide average. This fact along with a high infant mortality rate gave rise to the creation of a unique twin cult. For each deceased twin, a small carved wooden figurine, or ere ibeji, was made in which the spirit of the deceased could live on. This statuette was lovingly cared for on a daily basis and in return brought the family health and prosperity".
