Second half of the 20th century - Good condition

Voodoo altar fetish, Ewe or Adan (Togo, Ghana)

Ewé Voodoo altar fetish (Togo, Ghana)
Voodoo Fetish Figure (Togo,Ghana)

29 cm
11.4 inches



Very interesting Voodoo altar fetish, in its original condition, beautiful, aged patina, red fabric, various elements.
Two Ewe or Adan fetish figures tied together.


Voodoo is the cultural foundation of the Adja peoples (including the Fon, the Goun,
the Ewé... and to some extent, the Yoruba...), peoples who form
an important element of the populations established to the south of the states of the Bight of Benin.
(Benin, Togo, Ghana, Nigeria…).

Voodoo (pronounced Vodun) is the Fon adaptation of a Yoruba word
meaning “god”.
Voodoo thus refers to all of the gods or invisible forces whose
power or benevolence is sought by the people.
It is the affirmation of a supernatural world, but it also refers to all the practices
which enable people to get in touch with it.

Voodoo can be described as a culture, a heritage, a philosophy,
an art, dances, a language, a medicinal practice, a style of music,
justice, a power, an oral tradition, and rituals...



Ewe figures tied together, from Ghana, Togo. In the context of Voodoo practice, intermediaries to the gods...
