Bracelet Abagan Fon (N° 18830)

Ornaments of dignitaries of African art
This fon bracelet, made of silver, was, as its name suggests, worn on the arm by the village chief. It is indeed etymologically the meaning of the name "abagan", "aba" meaning arm and "gan" meaning chief. This bracelet is composed of chains, some of which are decorated with old French 50-cent coins. The jewel in itself is presented in the form of a cone accompanied by ornaments in volutes.
The Fon are currently located in a part of the Republic of Benin called the Kingdom of Dahomay. According to the legend, a princess of Yoruba origin would have created this kingdom before the seventeenth century.
