This little bronze sculpture will make a perfect gift for somebody who appreciates ethnic art and traditional crafts.
The stylized shape of this small elephant is typical for African tribal art.
The sculpture is made by Bobo people of Burkina Faso using the lost wax method: the model is carved in beeswax and a clay mold is formed around it, then the wax is melted away, leaving a void to fill with molten bronze.
