In good, antique condition - Cire perdue method

Eight exceptionally beautiful antique bronze or brass AMULETS or PENDANTS from West Africa, Ghana (AKAN) and Burkina Faso (LOBI).
These were handmade items, made using the lost-wax method (cire perdue), which were used to decorated the body and clothes.
They all have an eyelet, so that they can be worn on a necklace, strap or cord around the neck or around the waist by children and adults.
In good condition, lovely old patina due to long-term tribal use, some have acquired a very smooth finish, and were used well. Some minor damage and corrosion due to use (please view the photos).

Three round Akan pendants with lovely decorations and delicate, circular lines.
Large and small tortoise amulets from Burkino Faso.
Bird ornament from the Akan.
Two massive, engraved pendants.

Measurements and weight (approx.): please see the 50 Euro cent coin in comparison to their size; weighs 155 g in total.

Will be shipped registered and insured, in a parcel, with track and trace.
Can also be picked up in Leiden, the Netherlands.
