"The Power of Gold: Asante Royal Regalia from Ghana"

Be dazzled by more than 200 gleaming gold items of regalia, colorful and intricately woven silk, kente cloth, ceremonial furniture, state swords, linguist staffs, and other significant objects related to Asante royals from the 19th through the 21st centuries. Founded around 1701 with wealth derived from the gold trade with North Africa and Europe, the Asante Kingdom was a very powerful polity in West Africa. Inspired by works in the DMA's collection and featuring objects from public and private collections, the exhibit reveals the splendor of Asante regalia, much of which is made of gold.
