African Mudfish Brooch

From Ghana to Nigeria, the "mudfish" is a symbol of wealth and the ability to survive where others would perish. It is often represented in the brass weights once used in Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire to measure gold dust. Our jewelry and accessories featuring the entire mythical, magical fish are easily recognized, while the earrings inspired by the fish tail may not be as identifiable, are taken from a brass weight in the collection of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art.
