Description

Die Figur könnte die geliebte Frau des deifizierten Jägers Ake aus dem 15. Jh. darstellen, der als Gottheit der Bogenschützen verehrt wird. Einer anderen Interpretation zufolge bildet sie Prinzessin Edeleyo, die erstgeborene Tochter Oba Ewuares,
ab, die ihrem von einem vergifteten Pfeil getöteten Bruder auf den Thron hätte folgen sollen, jedoch vorher starb.
