Bamum is the most important Cameroon grassland kingdom in the east of the region. Their art is in a great part the art of a royal court that had a complex protocol and numerous rituals. The king and his court is a focal point of the Bamum, and exert powerful influence upon the development of the plastic art that tends towards dramatization, power and sumptuous luxury.
The King and dignitaries wore similar necklaces showing human or animal faces cast from copper or brass alloy and attached to a metal ring. Such necklaces were used in some royal ceremonies although their specific function is not clear.
This necklace is in very good condition and would be an excellent addition to your home or collection.
