Beautiful relic from the Kota people of Gabon.
These reliquaries have common features , a face made of a carved metal plate mounted on a wooden core and a handle in the shape of a diamond.
The reliquaries were stored in the back of the chef's hut and worshipped with offerings and prayers that sought to bring prosperity to the tribe.
Good condition with a nice patina obtained by corrosion and pollution, at the rear this relic has 3 cracks of which 2 have been repaired in the past with copper staples.
Will be carefully packaged and sent by registered mail with track & trace.
