  • Description

    This handsome bronze leopard will make a perfect gift for somebody who appreciates ethnic art and traditional crafts.

    The stylized shape and anthropomorphic face of this leopard is typical for African tribal art.

    The sculpture is made by artisans of Burkina Faso using the lost wax method: the model is hand-sculpted in beeswax and a clay mould is formed around it, then the wax is melted away, leaving a void to fill with molten bronze.

    Approx. size 8 x 4 x 3 cm
