|Availability:||In stock (1)|
Artisans in Burkina Faso cast each sculpture by hand, using the lost wax method – a skill passed down through generations. The artist sculpts wax, then coats it with clay and allows it to dry. Molten bronze is poured into the mold, melting the wax and allowing liquid bronze to fill the shape. Because the models must be broken away from the bronze that lies beneath, every lost-wax bronze statue is unique with slightly different characteristics of its own.
