Recycled Metal Photographer Sculptures

Swahili Modern


  • Whimsical sculptures crafted in Burkina Faso from recycled metal automobile and bicycle parts will delight amateur or professional photographers. These fun sculptures bounce erratically in the wind and will make a great addition to the yard or garden.

    Color of metal may vary slightly. Size: [Small] 8"L x 6.5"W x 14"T. [Medium] 8"L x 6.5"W x 18"T. [Large] 11"L x 6.5"W x 21"T. 

  • The Ilboudo brothers lead a small team of metal artisans in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Originating from an artisan incubator known as Village Artisanal de Ouagadougou (VAO), the artists create a series of amusing portrayals of everyday life from spark plugs and recycled metal for both local sale and export. Their whimsical recycled art reflects the light-hearted nature of many Burkinabe people and appeals to collectors around the world.
