The Dallas Museum of Art has opened a new show titled “The Power of Gold: Asante Royal Regalia in Ghana,” which offers to the viewer 250 items of gleaming gold regalia. In celebration, the DMA recently welcomed a delegation of visiting royalty that traveled all the way from Ghana to participate in myriad ceremonial events. The objects in the show relate to Asante royals from the 19th through the 21st centuries. Founded around 1701 with wealth derived from the gold trade with North Africa and Europe, the Asante Kingdom was a powerful entity in West Africa. The show, which puts a new spin on the term “gold standard,” consists of swords, helmets, royal stools, even a gold crocodile. Details”The Power of Gold: Asante Royal Regalia from Ghana” runs through Aug. 12 at the Dallas Museum of Art, 1717 N. Harwood in Dallas. $16, with discounts. 214-922-1200, dma.org.
