Description
Figurine(s) (1) - Bronze - Achantis - Ghana
2nd half 20th century - Excellent condition, barely used with minimal signs of wear

Superb set of 17 figurines celebrating a ritual procession during a royal festivity.
The large, armed chief is depicted in a palanquin carried by four porters. At the head of the procession a warrior carries his chair, others are armed, others still play music while one of them fans him and an umbrella bearer whose crown is finely chiselled, closes the walk.
The set is particularly fine in the details, which is quite rare in this kind of production.
Location: Asante region, in southern Ghana, which is a remnant of the Ashanti Empire.
Cire perdue (lost wax) casting technique. Unique item.
All the elements are securely fixed on their bronze base, without any weaknesses.
There is no missing or weakened element, no bump or scratch.
