Come Along Statue

$150

A mother leads her children along with this delightful multi-hued statue handcrafted using the ancient lost wax method of casting bronze. Lost wax is one of the first known methods of working with molten metal. The artisan sculpts wax, then coats it with clay and allows it to dry. The wax is melted and drained, then molten bronze is poured into the mold to fill the shape. After the metal cools, the artisan breaks the clay, revealing a one-of-a-kind figure. The villagers of Burkina Faso take pride in their creations, knowing that the work of their hands will last forever. Each piece is individually signed by its maker, giving it the authenticity of a work of fine art.
