Two tribal necklaces:
- 'Holy' Dogon necklace in iron and stone, worn by the Hogons, the spiritual leaders of the Dogon in Mali and their assistants...called benekesena ... they are the high priests, spiritual figureheads and usually the oldest men in the village.
According to Dogon mythology, the stones are covenant stones... douge... which represent the bones (and thus the power) of the Lebe, the first Hogon. Length 65 cm (double), so the total length is approx. 130 cm.
- A very special version of a cast bronze Kapsiki Camerun or Higi Nigeria necklace, with bronze beads, bells and so-called separate "Jepinewu" from the Mandara mountains. Length 52 cm (double), so total length approx. 100 cm.
Both necklaces are in beautiful old condition.

Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.De beschrijving van de blencong is niet correct. Enkel de houten sierplaat is uit de tijd. De houten bak is van een totaal andere kwaliteit. De nieuwe oliebak is van blik - met los zittende tuit.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.De blencong is volledig volgens beschrijving en de vele duidelijke afbeeldingen, daar kan geen enkel misverstand over bestaan. Wat zeer vreemd is, eerst krijg ik een positieve feedback en nu deze negatieve. Zeer teleurstellend deze negatieve reactie 5 dagen na ontvangst en zeer spijtig dat u niet tevreden bent met dit prachtige item.
Very well packed,beautiful piece, a responsible seller.
