The impressive Ejagham Headcrest from the Allan Stone Collection is distinguished by its archaic, highly naturalistic style and the spectacular coiffure of great curling braids. Only a handful of works of comparable quality and age are known, including: one in the Tropen Museum, Amsterdam (inv. no. "5133-62"); a second in the Musée du Quai Branly, Paris (inv. no. 71.1948.8.2 D", Monti 1964: 1377); and a third in The Cleveland Museum of Art (inv. no. "1990.23", Petridis 2003: 88). Lifelike, severe and almost hypnotic in its expression, the Allan Stone Ejagham Headcrest is the most major example of its kind to remain in private hands.
