This pendant is inspired by the Baule heads of Côte d’Ivoire. The human face was an explored subject of Baule goldsmiths of Côte d’Ivoire. These faces, casted in the form of gold ornaments, might be worn as neck pendants or attached to weapons. Their most important role was to serve as family heirlooms, symbols of family unity stretching across generations. Rarely, they were displayed at funerals and wedding ceremonies.
