As described by Antonio Martins

Pair of antique metal currency blades from D.R. Congo mounted on black stands. Forms like this iron "weapon" or blade were recognized and used by the Tarumba and Likele people as a bride price. It is much too thin to have ever been intended as a functional weapon and is not sharp.
