Burkina Bronzes

Contemplative Woman in Green Bronze Sculpture

Swahili Modern


  • This graceful sculpture, depicting a woman lost in thought, is cast in Burkina Faso using the lost wax method, which uses hand-formed wax to create shapes. Each sculpture is completely one-of-a-kind, so color and shape may vary slightly.

    Measures 3.75"L x 2.5"W x 4"T.

  • Artisans in Burkina Faso convey the serene beauty of feminine Africa in bronze, cast with the lost wax method: the sculpture 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.
