3 Fetishes of the Ada Adan ethnic group in light-weighted wood with a patina of wear and pigmentations of red and yellow ochre.
Ada fetishes are ritual objects of the voodoo cult, they are used by the Ewé and the Dangme of Ghana, established near the Togolese border.
They are usually materialised by small wooden figures, animals, daily accessories, or chairs, etc...
These sculptures are in charge of interceding with diverse divinities, evoked to offer to the followers protection, luck and prosperity throughout their personal and family lives, as well as their everyday activities (hunting, trade...).
Regarding these objects which were until now very little documented, there is an important publication which is exhaustively and richly documented.
