Agate and carnelian beads found near Djenne in Mali and used by the Dogon people. Researchers believe these were made before the 1200's AD. Most of these beads are biconvex and rhomboidal as well as lenticular in shape. The length of the beads vary between 1.6 and 3.5 cm, with a majority of beads between 2.2 and 2.6 cm long. The width of the beads varies between 1.5 and 2.4 cm and the majority is 1.7 cm wide.

In general, the beads play an important role in rituals ensuring the continuity of the group: birth, circumcision, marriage, warriorhood, kingship, death. In societies without writing, art objects can acquire extraordinary importance as visual records and are endowed with complex meaning. They serve as repositories of traditional knowledge which must be preserved and transmitted to succeeding generations.

Provenance : Lampevelden collection and obtained in situ (Farafina-Tigne In Sevaré, Mali).

Shipment with track and trace and insured.
