Colonel Festing rescuing Lieut. Eardley-Wilmots body

Colonel Francis Worgan Festing (1833-1886), rescuing the body of Lieut. Eardley-Wilmot during the Ashanti War (1873-74) from a sketch by the officer of the expedition. Eardley-Wilmot was shot down by the Ashantees whilst cheering on his men(the Houssa Artillery) in the second engagement near Dunquah, Ghana. Under heavy fire, Col. Festing dashed forward, lifted Wilmot into his arms and bore him to saftey, sustaining a severe wound in the hip. The stick in the Colonel's hand is a stout blackthorn, which is always carried for the purpose of 'encouraging' the men. In 1873, after decades of an uneasy relationship between the British and the Acing people of central Ghana, the British attacked and virtually destroyed the Asanti capital of Kumasi, and officially declared Ghana a crown colony on 24 July 1874"

The Asante Aya Kese, or great brass basin Featured Print

The Asante Aya Kese, or great brass basin

The Asante Aya Kese, or great brass basin, a Ghanaian ceremonial bowl, which originally stood outside the royal mausoleum at Bantama, 1817 (c)-1896 (c). Around the rim the sides flatten out forming a lip with baluster knops and on either side are a pair of crouching lions, facing each other with mouth open. Inside of the bowl is chased all round with lines of grooves from the maker's hammer. Brought from Kumasi, West Africa, during the 3rd Ashanti War, 1896 (c). The bowl was first described by Bowditch in 1817 as being used to collect the blood of beheaded sacrificial victims by the Kings of Ashanti. Rattray (p113) says however that this is incorrect. Date: 1817 (circa)
