Brass Amulet

Kotoko, Chad
19th Century or earlier

Provenance: Old European collection

Cast in the classic form of an equestrian figure, this small pendant showcases how diminutive objects can be just as detailed if not more than large objects. The features are extremely worn from generations of handling; while the integrity of the casting is still totally intact. The details of the figure and horse and its riding gear are both visible but delicately rounded from everyday use and wear.  Other notable details are the horse and riders curled feet, and the braided rein the rider is holding.
