Guitar Player Bronze Statue

Reduced price $120 $74.99

Strum and hum. This statuette is handcrafted using the ancient lost wax method of casting bronze. Originating in the Middle East in the ninth century, 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. Molten bronze is poured into the mold, melting the wax and allowing liquid bronze to fill the shape. After the metal cools, the artisan breaks the clay, revealing a one-of-a-kind figure. Added metalwork creates detail and a fine patina shade. Ranked 159 out of 162 countries on the United Nations Development Program scale, Burkina Faso is one of the poorest countries in the world. These sculptures ensure makers can earn a living wage.
