Ashanti Comb


Height – 86cm/34in.
Ashanti ceremonial comb, from the Ashanti tribe (Ghana, West Africa). Cast in solid aluminum and hand-worked with ostrich eggshells sourced from sustainable hatcheries in Oudtshoorn, South Africa. The Ashanti are the dominant ethnic group of a powerful 19th century empire in Western Africa and are today one of Ghana’s leading ethnic groups. Combs were given to women to mark special events, such as coming-of-age, marriage, or giving birth.
