Afrikanische Stachelschwein-Skulptur

Afrika
Often identified with the Asante peoples, brass weights for measuring gold dust were used throughout Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire. Each party to a trade would check the gold using their weights. Some weights evoke proverbs, and more then one proverb may apply. The porcupine, because of it's quills, is often associated with power and weapons- "Who dares to attack the porcupine, which has so many spikes?" Perhaps this is why one Asante king chose to send a large weight in the form of a porcupine to tell a guilty individual to pay a fine he owed.
