African Tribal Charms Hand-finished in Bronze
Tribal Charms have been worn by Africans for thousands of years for magical purposes. These symbols are worn to help the fulfillment of their needs and are reputed to invoke their spiritual ancestors.
Tribal Africans are dependant on the benevolence of the natural world for survival, the pulse of the seasons and the pattern of the weather decide life itself. To encourage favourable conditions, villagers carve charms of their gods, familiar animals and everyday objects. They wear these in the belief that these small images hold the spirit of the original and will attract what they desire.
For thousands of years these symbols have been passed down from father to son, by word of mouth, from tribe to tribe providing their authenticity, power and durability. It is reputed that you can invoke your guardian angels by wearing the charm of your need.
