Considered a good luck charm in West Africa this shiny bronze sculpture will make a lovely gift for somebody who appreciates ethnic art and traditional crafts.
The sculpture is made by artisans of Burkina Faso using the lost wax method: the model is carved in beeswax and a clay mould is formed around it, then the wax is melted away, leaving a void to fill with molten bronze.
