this photo is from the book "African Gold" by Timothy F. Garrard, showing a Peul woman in Mopti (Mali), wearing a bicone pendant of Gold together with other traditional jewellery, (4-lobed earrings and amber beads on the head). In earlier times rich People had These in pure Gold, today it is often guilded silver or other materials. The huge earrings are in Mali also worn by the Sonrai. Lots of Gold jewellery was also worn by the Tukulor/Wolof in Senegal and of course in Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire (Asante, Akan, Baule).
