2 Adan “Aklama” Voodoo Altar Fetishes
18 and 18 cm.
Aklama,Helping spirits of the Ewe and Dangme People from the Study collection of Horst Antes.
These statuettes in light-weighted wood, coated with pigments, are ritual objects of the voodoo cult, used by the Ewe, who speak the Adangbe/Ada language from Ghana, and who live near the Togolese border.
These Ade sculptures embody the diverse deities associated to hunting, common to the Yoruba and to the Ewe.
Regarding their use, these objects are found on specific altars, but we have already seen pictures illustrating those, grouped in a basket and dressed with a piece of cloth, like the Vinavi of the Ewe.
