Ref: sf-2058 Height 32 CM Product DescriptionColon Agni. Old piece over 50 years old. The Agnis are a West African population, living mainly in Ivory Coast, but also in Ghana. The Agnis represent approximately 1,200,000 people. They were the first people in the country to come into contact with Europeans in the 17th century. At the beginning of the 18th century, coming from the Ashanti kingdom of Ghana, the first Agnis crossed the Ivorian border with another people of primitive Akans. Arrived at the Aby lagoon, they founded the kingdom of Indénié, Kingdom of Sanwi and that of Moronou with the Agnis Mrôfo.Another part of the Agnis, led by Queen Abla Pokou, continues west and populates the great savannah covering the center of Cote d'Ivoire. They will not stop until they reach the Bandama River. The Agnis who followed Queen Abla Pokou are called the Baoulés (Baouli) "the child is dead" today. It should be noted that there are other subgroups such as the Agnis-Assonvon in the locality of Ebilassokro, in the east of Côte d'Ivoire. The Akan chieftaincy system is of the monarchical type: the choice stems from a hereditary mechanism of succession which limits the exercise of power to members of one and the same family. This was done in accordance with the general rule of successions of the ruling tribe which ruled a historical role from neighboring Ghana towards the end of the 17th century. Before French colonization, the Akan had developed a kingdom with a political structure composed of the sovereign assisted by his council. The rest of society was made up of three main castes: nobles, freemen and slaves. Among the Agnis, the witch doctor is the Komian. In the Akan societies of Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire, it is everyone who holds the occult knowledge. Komians can teach their knowledge to kings or give predictions about the future. Their magico-binding trances allow them to understand things that are incomprehensible to ordinary mortals. The kômians are grouped into secret societies.African art, African maskafrican art african tribal art arte africana afrikanische kunstPart delivered with an invoice and a certificate of authenticity.Another part of the Agnis, led by Queen Abla Pokou, continues west and populates the great savannah covering the center of Cote d'Ivoire.
