Stunning protective arachnid fetish from the Fali tribe of Cameron, related to an individual or to a house.
Their craftsmanship depends on the needs expressed by the soothsayer and on the individuals on which the protection is destined.
Thus, there are very similar ones, but crafted in a different manner.
According to the conducted research, it is possible that these kind of fetishes are related to numerous cults associated to the spider.
