Figure d'autel AKLAMA ADA EWE (Ghana)
Ewe Ada Figur Hilfsgeist (Ghana)
Important Aklama fetish in its original condition.
Bibliography: Aklama,Helping spirits of the Ewe and Dangme People from the Study collection of Horst Antes.
Ada fetishes are ritual objects of the voodoo cult, used by the Ewe and the Dangme of Ghana, who live near the Togolese border.
These are usually materialised by small wooden figures, animals, daily accessories, or stools, etc...
These figurines are responsible for the intercession with diverse deities, invoked in order to offer to the followers protection, luck and prosperity throughout their personal and family lives, as well as their everyday activities (hunting, trade, ...).
Although these pieces were very little studied and documented, there is an important publication, exhaustively and richly illustrated.

Toujours très content des fétiches aklama obtenus par votre entremise. Celui-ci, dans sa simplicité, est particulièrement élégant !
Toujours très satisfait des objets acquis chez ce vendeur, de bonne qualité et envoyés très professionnellement.
I have bought several items from this seller. They were all good quality, and I received them safely and quickly. Altogether, a perfect experience.
Packaging was flimsy, so pins that held the piece were bent and had to be straightened to mount the piece back onto its base. Otherwise all fine.
Great sevice and item! Thanks!
