    Is anyone here familiar with the story regarding the 12 Kings Of Dahomey? I ask because I ran across a site that had several forms of artwork displayed in the from of banners; A particular one that shows the 12 kings being represented as animals or objects, with their names associated with it below. What is the significance of these 12 pictures being a representation of the 12 kings of Dahomey?

    Here is the words to put into the google search bar:

    "UnseenBenin - royal cloths and totems of benin"

    Also, references to learn more about these kings would be great! Shalom and thanks in advance.
