Irunmole Sculptures Heading to the United States


Baba Kasali has been busy the month of February carving individual statues of the irunmole. Each one stands around knee high and all possess their ritual objects and symbols. Several people have commented they seem full of life, and truly, the ase they possess can be seen in every knife cut and curve.

Our friend from the U.S., Awo Adefemi, will be carrying them back with him where they will be available for sale to a few lucky clients. If you are interested, please contact us throught the email address kunlexy_olishe@yahoo.com and we will put you in touch with him there in the United States.  

Adefemi has spent many happy hours here hanging with my father while he carved these statues, so he knows firsthand the amount of time and care each one takes, besides the offerings that must be made periodically. We are very happy to welcome him into our family compound to take part in our daily life: getting up with the roosters at dawn, taking part in offerings to the irunmole and ancestors, and just having a good time hanging out under the trees playing with all the kids and talking story with my Aunties, Uncles, and so on.
