      There is plenty of info about Lamidi Olonade Fakeye online, there is even a movie about him He passed away in 2009, his work is highly collectable as he was named a living treasure.

      I am not looking for an appraisal just a general idea wanting to know if it's something I should start collecting or get rid of my home is very modern and I'm not sure it's going to fit in

      Well as Tube Amp explained to you in the very first comment, this work is highly collectible, meaning either you can collect it or sell it to a collector. If you are looking for a range of values, here are two sold at auction that I found in eleven pages.
