This piece has been vetted as authentic, showing signs of significant use and age.

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. There is one solid cast figure and one missing. Five of the hanging bead/cowrie ornaments are missing, as is one of the spring forms coming out of the lower section..

The stand is included.
