Description

An authentic bronze sculpture from Burkino Faso. A country known for artisans that specialize in the art of Lost Wax Bronze making. This way of crafting Bronze sculpture is an intense and gruelling process. The technique was first used in the 3rd millennium BC and is continued today by this select group of craftsmen in Burkino Faso.

These talented metalworkers cast this sculpture that depicts an African woman clothed in a yellow garment with matching headwrap. She is taking time out of her busy day to share a precious moment with her child. As they play together the bonds that unite grow stronger.

"Being a mother means that your heart is no longer yours; it wanders wherever your children do."

Measures 5 inches (height) x 2.5 inches (length) x 2.5 inches (width). 

This sculpture is handmade so there may be slight and subtle variations in pattern, shape and size. This is what makes the sculpture unique and a true work of art. 

Take a piece of Burkino Faso home with you and experience the beauty of their metal casting handiwork.
