Botchio Fon fetish - SOLD OUT

Superb African fetish from the Fon ethnic group in Togo / Benin.
This African art object comes in the form of a base depicting a face. On and around it, many items are attached using wires and cords: small containers filled with various materials, small accessories, bones and chicken legs, and a fetish figurine patina fat. The impressive amount of intertwined elements here testifies to the power of the piece. In the Fon, this type of object is created by the soothsayer or the wizard to settle concerns for everyday life, to ensure protection but also sometimes to cast the spell on another person.
