TARUMBA, CURRENCY, DRC

Forms like these iron shaped "weapons" and blades were recognized and used by the Tarumba and Likele people as a bride price. These forms have been re-identified as from the Topoke people.

They are much too thin to have ever been intended as functional weapons and are not sharp.

These have been vetted as authentic.
