Benin Armlet

Many types of bangles, made using the lost wax method of casting, are found all over West Africa. They were used as a form of currency, providing status to the wearer. Their value lay in the metal itself, and in the amount of ornamentation found on the bangle. 

These benin armlets were forged onto a bride’s arm as part of her wedding dowry.
