African currency pieces were used both for major purchases (land, animals, dowries) and to signify a transfer of wealth at major events, such as a coming of age ceremony or upon a death. This collar demonstrates the "perfect form" associated with African currency, with the added design element of elegant quills. We at Archeo personally travel to handpick each piece in the gallery, or buy from existing, accredited collectors.
