Most of our pieces have spent decades on at least two continents, and have been treasured by several owners. Small splits, scrapes and cracks are a normal part of their patina attesting to their age and extensive use. We examine each piece carefully when we receive it and report any damage we find in our listings. Please look carefully at the pictures which may also reveal condition and damage. Damage/Repair Oxidation ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: xquisite examples of an art of cast iron destined to represent "powers" of royal origin, the ancient gan bronzes were associated with the cults rendered to the minds of deceased members of the princely family, recognized by custom as spiritual protectors of the kingdom. Each of them enjoyed a motto recalling an important event in their existence and a symbolic figuration which, reproduced on the different types of ritual supports, gave each object the “sacred identity” necessary for its function. The repertoire of metal objects from this “plastic lexicon” which has guided the creative process of society by determining the uniqueness of its cultural supports brings together univocal representations, often animal, emblem of ancient entities, as well as complex figurations , made up of different significant elements, the association of which is supposed to translate the composite nature of the cults which, over the ages, have been integrated into the hierarchical religious system of this small Burkinabé kingdom. **138313** All content, including pictures, Copyright Africa Direct Inc., 2022 Add Us To Your Favorite Sellers!
