A STAGGERING, SHANGO DANCE WAND, YORUBA TRIBE, NIGERIA (No 0092)

£98.00
This is a staggering dance wand from the Yoruba people of Nigeria, West Africa. Features the double axe symbol of the God Shango over a large scarified face.  Unusual to find one like this dripping in strings of cowrie shells.  The patina shows age, particularly on the handle. In good condition.  Height approx 50cm.  This item could have been tribally used, but we are not sure.
