Small Brass Akwaba Woman Pendant - Ghana

$39.00
Style

This small brass woman "akwaba" gold weight pendant is a representation of the fertility doll figure that women in Ghana wear on their backs, carved in wood and larger, when they want to promote their own pregnancy. Pendants of this type were made as gold weights when gold was the common currency everywhere in West Africa, more than 100 years ago. Each small brass gold weight pendant is individually hand cast using the traditional lost wax casting method so no two are exactly alike. We offer a selection here from which you may choose.

These same gold weight pendants are available for purchase strung on leather as necklaces elsewhere on our site.

 Approximately 2" height (5 cm)
