During the 19th century along the West African Loango coast, now part of Angola, a busy commercial trade took place in slaves, ivory, fish, timber, rubber and animals in which both Europeans and indigenous peoples took part. Merchants returning home often purchased these expressively carved ivory tusks from the local workshops along the Loango coast as a reminder of their travels.
