Six miniature Senufo amulets
Ivory Coast
Bronze
H. 2 to 3.1 cm
Set of six miniature Senufo amulets in bronze representing anthropomorphic characters. These charm objects all show deep wear due to their handling. Blandin specifies that this extreme wear cannot be the result of carrying, even for a long time. "It is likely that this type of amulet was part of the diviner's equipment, consisting of objects of all kinds kept in a pot that the diviner shakes and spills on the ground during his operations" (1988, p. 89).
