Akan goldweight figures were used as a measuring system by the Akan people of Africa. The gold weights were used to weigh gold dust which was used as currency before money and coins were invented.  Locally they are known as mrammou, and the weights are made of brass using the lost-wax casting method. However, this erotic weight of a couple was not made to weigh gold dust, but was purely made to use as decoration or to sell.


We have 17 similar weights like these in stock, so if you purchase one then yours will be very similar to the one on the picture.


If you purchase 2 or more of these brass weights, the shipping costs will only be calculated once.
