Bronze Seeker of Knowledge African Sculpture

Swahili Modern

BK05C

  • Using the lost wax method to cast this calming bronze sculpture, artisans in Burkina Faso celebrate the aspirations of a lovely female figure searching for knowledge in a book.

    An amazing value compared to similar bronze sculptures sold in the US, this work of African art adds beauty and meaning to any ledge in your home.

    Measures 4"L x 4"W x 7.5"T. Some variation will occur.

  • 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.
