This is a fabulous iron Currency Stick from the Idoma Tribal People of Nigeria. Akika (money Sticks) were used by the Idoma during ceremonies and negotiations for a bride. Iron could be converted into agricultural tools to honor the spirits of the harvest or into weapons thereby adding to its value. The range of African currencies is in size from the smallest personal adornments such as beads, shells and jewelry to massive iron forms. These primitive monies were both aesthetic and functional and were used to buy everyday items such as food, cloth and tools as well as major life transactions. This is a beautiful Iron currency stick and would be a wonderful addition to your collection and home.
