These old photos are priceless – Igbo

old

This is and older photo, can any one help me to identify his tribe or any of the tools in the photo. I liked the art piece behind him. Are they of significance? I have no idea of the origin of the photo.

“The ancient Poets animated all sensible objects with Gods or Geniuses, calling them by the names and adorning them with the properties of woods, rivers, mountains, lakes, cities, nations, and whatever their enlarged & numerous senses could perceive.And particularly they studied the genius of each city & country, placing it under its mental deity;Till a system was formed, which some took advantage of & enslav’d the vulgar by attempting to realize or abstract the mental deities from their objects: thus began Priesthood;Choosing forms of worship from poetic tales.And at length they pronounced that the Gods had order’d such things.Thus men forgot that All deities reside in the human breast.”
