Asen fer forgé (N° 22402)

Dr. Suzanne Preston Blier delivers an exhaustive study of the asen collection of the Barbier-Mueller Museum, which is among the most refined and diverse examples of these portable metal altars from the kingdom of Danhomè in what is now the Republic of Benin. In her introduction, she reconstructs the history of the asen and shows how this artistic tradition has played an essential role in the very history of the region, a history that dates back to the 17th century, and probably even earlier. It examines the socio-historical importance of asen and the vital role played by the artists themselves.
