5 AKLAMA ADA EWE altar figurines (Ghana)
For identical Aklama, have a look at the book Aklama,Helping spirits of the Ewe and Dangme People from the Study collection of Horst Antes.
5 fetishes of the Ada Adan ethnic group made of light-weighted wood with an old patina of use with traces of pigmentation on some parts.
Ada fetishes are ritual objects of the voodoo cult, used by the Ewe and the Dangme of Ghana, who live near the Togolese border. These are usually materialised by small wooden figures, animals, daily accessories, or stools, etc.
These statuettes are responsible for interceding with the various deities called to offer believers, protection, luck and prosperity.
throughout their personal and family lives, as well as their everyday activities (hunting, trade...).
Although these pieces were very barely studied and documented, there is one important publication, exhaustively and richly illustrated.
