Traditional Bronze
gallery : traditional bronze
     
These bronze castings are created using the lost wax method with the finest pieces found in Nigeria, Mali, Burkina Faso, Benin, Ivory Coast and Ghana. Among the many objects cast of bronze are warriors, icons, animals, gold weights, ancestors, elders, chiefs and fertility figures. The Dogon tribe of Mali honor their great horsemen who defended them from centuries of assailants. Since the form is molded in wax, the piece can be of great detail and design, limited only to the imagination of the caster. Great value is associated with the skill of design and artistry as they are all original one cast pieces.
