At one time in the Bamum kingdom, this type of metal collar ornament decorated with water buffalo heads was worn by the most respected dignitaries who gathered at council meetings. At the turn of the 20th century these distinctive metal rings mainly became the property of women who used them as neck and girdle area ornaments. The example here was most likely used in that manner. It is in very fine condition, and measures 13" in diameter. Early 20th century. Provenance: Mr. and Mrs...

This Goli dance whip measures approximately 32" when extended. The braided leather portion is completely intact, not at all typical for such an old and well-used object. The hardwood handle is very finely carved with intricate and sure cuts and shows great precision by the hand that made it. The patina is a glowing, shiny, deep, honey-brown from much use and handling. It is from a NYC private collection, since the 1960's. From Ivory Coast, West Africa, early 20th century...

this cap mask may have been used as a champion cultivator trophy hat called "goga". The winner of the daylong farming contest "sambali" would dance to the side of the musicians to receive special honour and praise. The reason for the female imagery on the cap might be that it was above all the "sambali" who would "quickly get a wife". A second possible context of meaning is that the figure refers to the special powers of women in "poro" society and particularly their priestly role as diviners...
