Fetish FON Couple 20 cm

This fetish was used to strengthen the couple in the long term, against the contingencies of life, in order to avoid any separation.
Obtained from the libations which it was subject to during voodoo ceremonies, its patina attests both of its antiquity and ritual use.
The man and the woman are firmly tied to each other.
Please note the magical loads all over the body.

A bewitching fetish!

From the Fon of Benin.

Wood, fibre, cord, cowry shells, fabric, pigment, patina.
