Senufo Copper Reeds Currency Bracelet
The traditional form of the Senufo currency bracelet is stripped down in this more minimalistic version. Two gracefully upswept bands join to form a sculptural object that plays beautifully off of its negative space. At the center, the blacksmith forged a decorative tie, imitating the knotted reeds that would hold an organic version of this bracelet in place. The result is an artfully simple sculptural object, paying homage to multiple traditional art forms.
