Owo People __ "The Owo site was first excavated in 1969 by Ekpo Eyo in the contemporary Yoruba town of Owo. Archaeologists have found terracotta sculptures dating to the 15th century. Owo is situated halfway between the Nigerian towns of Ife and Benin in southern Nigeria, and so it is not surprising that Owo art displays characteristics of both traditions." A brief overview of history only is found here. - From University of Iowa - http://www.uiowa.edu/~africart/toc/people/Owo.html
