The Kota inhabit the eastern part of Gabon, which is rich in iron ore. The blacksmith, also a wood carver, made tools for agricultural work as well as ritual weapons and reliquary figures. As for the brass ornaments, when they were too voluminous to be worn, they were worth money and served as a wedding dowry. Oxidized granular patina.
