Bamum Court Jester

Email for shipping outside of continental US

 African court jesters typically exhibited some physical difference from the norm whether it was in being of short statue or having a hump. Their duties were telling jokes, praising the rulers and making sharp comments. They often moved in a strange way - either exaggerated or nimble -  and played some musical instrument. Above all they used wit, puns and riddles.

This bronze jester has a horn and a jug of wine. His crown has 3 monkeys on it.
