YORUBA, METALWORK, Nigeria

In addition to a large and varied collection of iron currencies, gongs, bells and Osanyin healing staffs, the Yoruba also have cast figures and staffs, most from the Ogboni Society of elders. Dedicated to Onile, "the owner of the earth", they are referred to as Onile figures and in other forms as Edan staffs. One is a Shango staff. Although called "bronzes" they are usually various copper alloys, made by the lost wax process.
