Large Aklama Fetish of the Ada Adan Ethnic Group 39 cm

ADA EWE Altar Figure (Ghana).

Figure d'autel ADA EWE (Ghana).
Ewe Ada Figur Hilfsgeist (Ghana).



Aklama fetishes are ritual objects of the voodoo cult, used by the Ewe and the Dangme of Ghana, who live near the Togolese border.
These are usually materialised by small wooden figures, animals, daily accessories, or stools, etc...
These sculptures are responsible for the intercession with diverse divinities, invoked in order to offer to the followers protection, luck and prosperity throughout their personal and family lives, as well as their everyday activities (hunting, trade, ...).


Although these pieces were very little studied and documented, there is an important publication, exhaustively and richly illustrated.

Bibliography: Aklama,Helping spirits of the Ewe and Dangme People from the Study collection of Horst Antes.
