Tsonga / Zulu / Nguni Tribe Ceremonial Axe

Tsonga / Zulu / Nguni Tribe Ceremonial Axe

African tribal weapons are fast becoming highly collectible. Check out the video above and let me know what you think. I personally think African tribal weapons have been overlooked. Some of the tribal weapons or ceremonial  staffs like the one in the video have a very interesting design. These were found typically with people of high social status among the Tsonga tribes in Southern Africa. Metropolitan Museum currently has a similar ceremonial axe from the Shona people (Zimbabwe, Mozambique) made around 1900.

In fact, the Shona people, for instance, are known for their artistic craftmanship – from carving to intricate designs in wireworks. Our Southern African Collection will be up for sale soon which will feature artifacts from the Shona,  Tsonga, Ndebele, Zulu and Nguni Tribes. Please note that these tribes were not bound to country borders we know today.

Let me know what you think. If there is something you really wanted, for exampla a Tsonga Axe, add it to your wishlist, we can help you acquire it.

Many thanks to Skallagrim for sharing this video on their Youtube channel.
