Bracelet Fon (N° 18828)

Prestigious ornaments of African art
This silver fon bracelet was 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 linking a decorative subject, a rectangular volume topped by a cut-out forming the silhouette of a bat.
The Fon are currently located in a region 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 17th century.
