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.
