Through Pierluigi Peroni's collection, all the talent and mastery of West African smelters is represented...
The author has selected about 270 small-sized metal objects (copper, bronze, aluminium, gold alloys...) among the most beautiful, the rarest and the oldest of his important collection...
Pendants, protective amulets, bracelets, rings, gold weighing weights, human or animal representations, from 3 to 12 cm, are wonders to be discovered, throughout the pages...
Most of the objects in this book are unpublished.
