The most skilled African artisans created jewellery from the most precious metals--brass, copper, silver and gold. While bracelets, pendants and earrings were decorative, they were also store currency, representing the accumulated wealth of individuals or families.
Although attributed to the Baule, this pendant and other forms of jewellery made by Baule metalsmiths could have circulated in the coastal region of Côte d'Ivoire, where gold jewellery was a prized possession of wealthy families, and public exhibitions of acquired gold served to increase one's status.
