Jean-Pierre Warnier returns to the origins of the material culture by using the concept of the local trajectories of Africa’s politics and accumulation. Jean-Pierre Warnier then further explicates the idea of accumulation by explaining the significance of the tirelire vitale du sang (living piggybank of blood), which he defines as the accumulation of blood though the representation of the king.
