Bell Gong Currency | D.R. Congo

£780

DESCRIPTION
This beautiful bell gong comes from the Mongo people of D.R. Congo. They are known as being highly skilled blacksmiths and gongs like this were used for religious ceremonies, funerals and fertility rites. The gong would have been beaten with a wooden stick that had a woven beaded to set cadence for the music. It also would have been used as a form of currency to trade with. 

We love this currency for its shape, colour and subtle design details.
