fibre bracelet (bracelet)


This bracelet or Ipa was probably made from the plant fibre plantain. This plant was first cultivated on Fernando Po (now Bioko) by the Portuguese when they occupied the island. The bracelet’s cultural significance to the indigenous Bubi people was not recorded when it joined a European’s collection.
