Gan Bronze Amulet – Snakes – Burkina Faso

20th century. Cm. 9,0 high x 7,2 width (3.54″ x 2.83″); Gr. 41,1 (1.44 oz.). Lost-wax casting. The mold is destroyed every time; every object is a unique piece. Excellent work. Interesting collector’s item, but also excellent talisman to wear. For more information and similar examples, “Bronzes gan – la spirale du serpent”, by Bertrand Goy and Maine Durieu, Editions Sépia – 2005, provides a close analysis of the Gan Bronzes, examining them both thematically and aesthetically.
