This vintage brass pendant from the Kuba Tribe of central Africa was made circa 1980 and features a linear, tribal design. Part of the pendant is missing – it doesn’t appear to have broken off because the edges are soft like elsewhere around the whole pendant.

The Kuba believed in Bumba, the Sky Father, who birthed the planets, moon, and stars, and created life with the Earth Mother. They also believed in a supernatural being named Woot, who was the first human and generated civilization. Woot also was the namer of animals and other things. The Kuba are sometimes known as the “Children of Woot.”
