Bracelets made of bronze and fashioned into intricate designs, such as this handsome example, are items reserved for the nobility and high ranking persons. Devotees of the Priestess of Osun also wear bracelets, usually of bronze, during ritual ceremonies. Such an ornament would single a person out as someone of importance. The design on this bracelet comprises three separate bands of triangles formed of very fine criss-cross wires in a grid pattern. The effect is like lattice work, or a delicate tropical flower. The lovely patina of the bronze adds an extra floral touch. Whether worn or displayed this bracelet is a work of art exemplifying the rich tradition of the Yoruba blacksmith/artist. - (PF.4898)
