FON ASEN STAFF 210

FON
Staff 210
46.5 " high x 8" wide
$1500

This piece has been vetted as authentic, showing signs of significant use and age. The metal has oxidized to a more greenish tone than most Asen staffs, which usually are more rusted. There are three solid cast figures, two seated and one kneeling. Five of the hanging bead/cowrie ornaments are missing, otherwise it is in very good condition.

Staffs made of iron and brass were displayed in royal compounds to affirm kingly power. Usually depicting a king with related motifs, they were called "Asen" and commemorated past rulers.

The stand is included.
