$455.00

This is a very unique Kissi Currency Bundle Fetish from Liberia. T-shaped iron rods with appendages symbolic of birds or abstract images were widely used as currency among the Kissi people, even as late as the 1950s. During the colonial period, one rod had the value of a British penny, hence the name Kissi penny. During the colonial period, one rod had the value of a British penny, hence the name Kissi penny. Bundles of these rods are still used as bride wealth in traditional marriage ceremonies. The rods came in various lengths. The structural features of the rod were considered an indicator of the quality of the iron as demonstrated by the ability to twist the shaft, draw the wings out to fine points, and flatten the foot into a thin plate. The value of Kissi pennies was increased when they were forged into bundles which played an important role as symbols of wealth and prestige. When given as bride wealth, the bundle signifies the bond of marriage. A wonderful Currency statue for you home or collection.
