This rare piece––acquired through the personal collection of an astute collector–-was so unusual and interesting, we couldn't resist. Made of wood, it is the mold for the wax-relief castings of ankle currencies, much like the ones we've often offered here at Archeo. Beautiful in its own right, this curio piece adds a fascinating aspect to, and rounds out the story of, any African art collection.
