Abstract
The work of renowned Yoruba woodcarver Lamidi Olonade Fakeye is of exceptional beauty. The pieces illustrated here represent four decades of Fakeye's artistic career, from 1960 to the present. His autobiography traces the lineage of Yoruba woodcarvers from which he descends, the years of his apprenticeship and his studies abroad, and his establishment as one of Nigeria's foremost traditional sculptors, a master woodcarver with apprentices of his own.
