This touching bronze sculpture of an expectant mother highlights the love a mother feels for her baby even before birth. Burkina Faso artisans cast it using a lost wax casting method, then hand-paint the details of the dress and headpiece.
Designed to sit on the edge of a ledge, shelf or table, this sculpture measures 4.5"L x 2.25"W x 6.5"T.
Accomplished bronze artist Patrice Balma started out as a street vendor but now owns a gallery in Burkina Faso where he sells his highly sought-after sculptures. In his words: "My designs are all classic and contemporary, and always characterized by a willingness to research the strength of expression."
