Item Specification
For the serious collector of African artifacts, this bronze lost-wax bronze sculpture is exceptional. Most likely this is a depiction of a warrior-king. Produced in the late 1800's or early 1900's in the Benin Kingdom of Africa, now Nigeria. Cast bronze, with possibly some iron and/copper added. There is some rust - oxidation, but the true color is not as "red" as the photos show. The shield is a separate piece, welded on after the casting was complete. This piece was acquired from the estate of the late Ken Shores, a renowned artist and collector. Weighs just under 12 lbs. 16.75" high. Base is about 7" x 3.75". Please use the zoom feature to inspect carefully. Will be shipped insured for full value, and extremely well packed.
