Abstract
The focus of this paper is !"#r$!as sacrifice among the Igbo of South-east
Nigeria. The paper discusses such issues as, what Mbar$ is; where it is
practised in Igbo land; why it is practiced; how the building, sculptural arts
and paintings involved are created; and the significance of Mbar$ to the
section of the Igbo communities where it is practised. The researchers
discover that the architecture, sculptures and paintings in modern Mbar$ are
more durable than those in the older Mbar$ as a result of the fact of their
being constructed with more lasting materials. Modern Mbar$ therefore
serve not only as sacrifices offered
