Akan Goldweight 

Goldweight from the Ashanti region of Ghana in  the form of a mask paired with leather 

Goldweights are weights made of brass which were used 
as a measuring system by the Akan people of Ghana particularly for 
weighing gold dust which was the currency until paper money and coins 
came through. Small Goldweight sculptures cast from the lost wax 
technique were used to ease trade while depicting Akan values 
characterized through proverbs or popular sayings. [ dents & 
"imperfections" may exist on brass due to old age
