We are always excited to celebrate exceptional talents like Ibukun Emmanuel, a student of Federal Polytechnic, Auchi, who came an internet sensation earlier this year for creating a sculpture of the Oba of Benin on a life tree.
Wow! Isn’t this just amazing?
Ibukun gained recognition after a facebook user, Wap Junior posted the picture and video of his sculptural work on the social media.
The creative sculptor who hailed from Ondo State crafted the bust of the Oba of Benin with his many beads and crown from a standing tree, making his artwork is the best of its kind in Nigeria.
The tree where he crafted the Oba’s head is located in the Polytechnic’s school of Art and Design campus one in Auchi.
We Celebrate This Exceptional Sculptor!
