The African cowrie shell, abundant on the coast of west Africa, was at one time the most successful form of currency in the world. Even today, the cowrie is used as a symbol of aristocratic trade in west Africa. NANA - COWRIE embodies the significance of African ingenuity in global economy, politics and society.
