Ref: m-1754Height 32 CM Product DescriptionAgni mask from Ivory Coast. Piece over 50 years old, delivered on a base. The Agnis are a people of West Africa of around 1,200,000 people, living mainly in Côte d'Ivoire. They are also present in neighboring Ghana. They were the first people in the region 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 Akans. Arrived at the Aby lagoon, they founded the kingdom of Indénié, Kingdom of Sanwi and that of Moronou with the Agnis Mrôfo. It should be noted that there are other sub-groups such as the Agnis-Assonvon in the locality of Ebilassokro, in the east of Côte d'Ivoire. The Akan chiefdom system is monarchical: 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 taking place under the general rule of reigning tribe estates which ruled a historic role from neighboring Ghana in the late 17th century. Before French colonization, the Akan had developed a kingdom with a political structure made up of the sovereign assisted by his council. The rest of society was made up of three main castes: nobles, freemen and servants. Among the Agnis, the fetishist is the Kômian. In the Akans societies of Ghana and the Ivory Coast, it is all the people who hold the occult knowledge. The Kômians can teach their knowledge to kings or give predictions about the future. Their magico-religious trances allow them to understand things incomprehensible to ordinary people. The kômians are grouped together in secret societies. There was a great influence from the Togolese pastors of the Church of Pentecost towards the Agnis of Ghana and then of Côte d'Ivoire in the 1950s.African art african tribal art arte africana afrikanische kunstAfrican art, African maskPiece delivered with an invoice and a certificate of authenticity.
