Fetish (1) - Wood - NAGO / FON - Benin

Description
Fetish (1) - Wood - NAGO / FON - Benin
1st half 20th century - Good condition, used with some signs of wear

This is an old used fetish that comes from a voodoo culture house.
I have acquired it in situ in 1978.
This object served to join the good forces and keep them with the figurine.
The 'carnats' are old of German-make.
One can also recognize an animal skull on the abdomen of the figurine.

Look carefully at the photos and the details.
