Moshood Olúṣọmọ Bámigbóyè was one of the premier Yorùbá woodcarvers in Nigeria during the twentieth-century. Known for his spectacularly detailed masks and figures, Bámigbóyè was not only an unparalleled artist, he was also a healer and religious figure in his community. Bámigbóyè: A Master Sculptor of the Yorùbá Tradition was published to accompany a major exhibition of the artist’s work at the Yale University Art Gallery. Richly tuned images and detailed essays create a spectacular portrait of this important artist.
