The exhibit description is as follows:

Dynasty and Divinity: Ife Art in Ancient Nigeria. The Kingdom of Ife (pronounced EE-fay) flourished from the 12th to 15th centuries in what is now southwestern Nigeria. Dynasty and Divinity comes to Houston just as Nigeria celebrates the 50th anniversary of its independence on October 1, 1960. The exhibition features superb examples of brass, copper, stone, and terra-cotta Ife sculpture, drawn entirely from the magnificent collections of the National Commission for Museums and Monuments in Nigeria. This exhibit makes its U.S. premiere at the MFAH.
