About the Ibibio dolls I don't think that this mine
can be considered a doll, it is the representation of a notabile with a cap of
eagle plumes on a barrel of palm oil, that was put on an altar in the forest by
the Ibibio, but it has arms, legs and plumes movable so perhaps we can
consider it as a puppet in a late sense....

I like your Ibibio doll very much. It is something I am not too familar
In my limited library, I always go to the book: Isn't S/He a Doll to find
information, but it is strange because Elisabeth Cameron doesn't have a
section in there about Ibibio dolls, however she does have photographs of 2
Ibibio dolls in the UCLS Fowler Museum Collection in her book.
I have scanned them and added them to the bottom of the Ibibio puppets
page on my website.
I do like your doll better!

I posted a message asking about Ibibio dolls. I have now
posted one of
mine in the photo section under title "Ibibio".
Any comments gratefully
