The exhibition „Kotoko Equestrians, Guardians of the Soul“showcases talismans of the Kotoko people, casted in bronze in the shape of miniature equestrian figures, which are only few centimeters large. These talismans, known as the “Kotoko equestrians” were worn as pendants on necklacess and bracelets and they had an important function of protecting a man’s soul from the erratic spirits.
The objects presented at the exhibition belong to Italian collector of African Art, Pierluigi Peroni. His collection was first shown in 2011 in Milan, at the Passion Oratory of the St. Ambrogio Basilica.
The promotional price is 100 dinars per person (all ages)
