Scope and Contents:
The photograph depicts detail of ceremonial sword held by attendant of Asantehene Otomfuo Nana Opoku Ware II. "In the nineteenth century sword ornaments became more varied and numerous, often representing a proverbial theme. Further proliferation occured in this century, more specifically after 1924, when the Asantehene Prempeh I returned from his long exile." [Timothy F. Garrard, 1989: Gold of Africa, Prestel]. "Although often identified with the Asante, the most numerous and best known of the Akan peoples, weights for measuring gold dust were made and used throughout Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire. Some figurative weights evoke well-known Akan proverbs, and more than one proverb may apply. This is particularly true of animal weights, although the nimsaakakyi, an antelope with very long horns, fairly consistently refers to the uselessness of hindsight; in other words, "It is always too late to say 'Had I known!'" This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for Westinghouse Film and traveled to Africa from October 26, 1970 to end of March 1971.
