Adan Voodoo Altar Fetish
20 cm without the stand.
Hardwood of a reddish tint, coated with white clay.
This fetish is a ritual object of the voodoo cult, used by the Ewe, who speak the Adangbe/Ada language from Ghana, and who live near the Togolese border.
These Ade sculptures embody the diverse deities associated to hunting, common to the Yoruba and to the Ewe.
Regarding their use, these objects are found on specific altars, but we have already seen pictures illustrating these grouped in a basket and dressed with a piece of cloth, like the Vinavi of the Ewe.
Adapted from the work of Dr. Volker Schneider, Zeutern, Germany.
