Marabout hat Fon of Dendi
African art > Headdress Hat > Marabout hat Fon of Dendi

Private collection of African art J.Putteners
In its history, Fon African art has been imbued with Yoruba and ewe creations according to migration and trade. However, this art cannot be reduced to these two influences. Indeed, the Fon themselves have brought their originality to their statuary.
In particular, voodoo or vodun, a religious cult whose name comes from a variant of the Yoruba word meaning "dieu", is found in them.

At the top of a basket woven with natural fibres, the skull and horns of an animal are decorated with beads of blue, white and red glasses, cauris for the pupils and along the middle line dividing the skull. There are metal rings, bells and leather bags, giving this " object of curiosity" a special strangeness.
