The Image

The embroidered design on the jacket is the iconic image of a 16th century ivory pendent mask of the likeness of Iyoba Idia (Queen Mother) from the ancient Kingdom of Benin in what is now modern day Nigeria.   The mask is one of the most recognisable African images.

 

The Story

Iyoba Idia was of the Edo people. She was a warrior, protector, and a political & spiritual guide who fought for her son, Osegie, to claim the title of Oba of the Kingdom of Benin (c1504 to c1550). Her power and influence were such that she has been referred to as the ‘Hidden Oba’. She represents a timeless example of an African leader.
