Ashanti Bronze (N° 24246)

The Ashanti , Asante , mastered the art of lost wax casting, the copper metal being sacred, in order to produce ritual and prestigious objects, such as < b> Kuduo made of brass which were intended, in addition to the storage of gold dust, for family and royal domestic worship. This semi-spherical mask intended for hanging is adorned with an abundance of fine decorative motifs. Dark patina with green inlays.
The Ashanti are one of the ethnic groups of Ghana (former "Gold Coast"), of the group of Akans, living in a region covered with forests. Just like other people living in the central and southern part of Ghana, they speak a language of the Twi group. This people considers the woman as the final arbiter of all decisions. Fertility and children are the most common themes depicted in Ashanti wood carvings.
