Dance Of The Maiden
Oil on Velvet painting of a young Igbo maiden dancing.
The ‘Nkwa umu-Agbogho’ otherwise known has ‘the Maiden dance’ was mostly a dance for a group of Igbo young ladies from Edo state in Nigeria. This was an occasion where young maidens who have come of age to marry flaunted their body in breathe-taking chest and waist dance with the aim of attracting suitors. And this majestic oil on velvet artwork captures the moment a beautiful young woman dances with her heart and soul joyously to the sweet beautiful sound of music while young eligible suitors gaze upon her dazzling movements.
This enchanting velvet portrait is a lovely work of art and would make a beautiful addition to your home or office décor, that would have your guest commenting about it.
