|材質:||Glass beads, 動物毛髮, 木, 皮革|
The Royal Fly Whisks (ethnic names: see leng koko or beuka) used in dances are made of carved wood to which horse tails are attached. These tails are veritable war trophies cut from horses killed in battle against and amongst the Bamoum, Fulbe and Chamba. The handles are covered with burlap and embroidered with European glass beads. Fly Whisks are Royal attributes, and each King possesses several examples. The King can authorize certain dignitaries or warriors to use them as long as no more than three individuals use the same one.Most of the whisk handles are relatively simple in shape, but other, more complex, handle forms are sometimes encountered including horned animals, monkeys, elephants, birds, person (s), etc.
This beaded flywhisk is made of a horses tail and superbly embellished with coloured beads. The handle is lined with delicate cylindrical blue beads. The gorgeous handle is further decorated with a stunning rooster’s head which is fashioned from red, white and blue beads of varying sizes. The open mouth of the head is lined with an elegant red cloth. The authentic stitching with which the flowing black-haired tail is attached to the handle is visible on the back of this unique piece.
