Bamileke beaded sticks?
- Hello everyone,
Wondered if someone can give me a link for information on Bamileke sticks, I would post a
picture but for some I reason they won't uplift.
My contact in Cameroon has brought me some walking sticks, or maybe they arn't walking
sticks at all and thats why I can't find any info on them..they are heavily beaded, and one
features an elephant on the top level, followed by a monkey, followed by another animal, the
second stick or totem has an elephant on the top level with twin figures of a man back to
back...they stand about 2ft tall, and the beads cover the entire stick in bands.
They are very beautiful in the standard of beadwork and I would like to know more about
them, I appreciate any links.
Cheers from Senegal.
