Burkina Faso Bronze Tiny Dancer

Swahili Modern


  • The graceful long lines of a ballerina are captured in bronze by artisans in Burkina Faso. Each ballerina is cast from wax then bronze and hand-painted with a delicate aquamarine to add a beautiful contrast.

    Offered at an impressive value, the ballerinas are impressive accent pieces for the mantle or bookshelf or for a young ballerina's room.

    Small measures 6"H. 

  • 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.
