This large anklet, and other uniquely designed metal pieces like it, served as pieces of currency in the Congo. They were used for rare, but major transactions. These particular Mbole forms were modeled after anklets that were actually worn generations ago, but are no longer worn. Their age is unknown, but similar pieces have been found to be centuries old. These dramatic copper forms have been popular for decades with designers and any collector who appreciates beautiful form and function. They are now nearly impossible to find.
