Afrikanische Vogel-Skulptur

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 own weights. The pose identifies the sankofa bird. It refers to proverbs about the wisdom of looking back to know how to go forward. This figurine is cast from a weight in the collection of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American Art that dates from 1700 to 1900.
