Vintage West African Shaman Medicine Man Vest w/ Horn
Rare West African vest from a shamanic medicine man, featuring an aged brown woven canvas with several different talismanic artifacts; mirrors, black leather pouches and cowrie shells affixed to it. The vest is suspended by a dark brown gemsbok horn.
We found this gem at an Art collector's home in Chicago, IL. In great condition for its age, small imperfections found throughout adding a nice worldly look and feel. Side pockets still have some herbal mixtures in them. Rare art gallery worthy, an incredible piece of African History to have in a special space.
