Three turtle pendants
Côte d'Ivoire/Burkina Faso
Bronze
H. 3.1 to 7 cm
Set of three bronze pendants featuring stylized turtles. The main disc represents the shell, while small projections represent the head, limbs and tail.
M. Kourouoma quoted by Blandin (1988, p. 82) writes: "The turtle worn as a pendant indicates to the initiates how to approach the one who wears it. The convolutions translate: the secret locked in the center is difficult to reach."
