Seunfo/Tussyan, Ivory Coast
19th Century
Field Collected 1975

Of classic double figure form; this example is superbly cast. There are many fakes of these on the market today. The wear on these said fakes are done in haste and mostly exhibit sanding marks. This example on the other hand, has natural wear from decades of handling and use. The diviner would invoke the power of madebele by using such an artifact. Touching this amulet's surface one can only imagine the countless rituals it was used in.

This amulet stands 2.9" in height.
