ABOUT BENIN BRONZE

Benin Bronzes crafted by the Edo people, go back to the 13th century and were sculptural pieces that decorated the royal palace of the Kingdom of Benin (Modern-day Nigeria). The art pieces included metal plaques, portrait heads, animals, and jewelry all made from brass or bronze. Many of these pieces were stolen by the British forces during the Benin Expedition and are now on display at the British Museum in London.

Made using the “Lost Wax Process” a cast is made using a clay core, then layered with bee’s wax to a certain thickness allowing the artist to begin the crafting process. Molten metal is then poured into the sculpture forming what we know as “Benin Bronze Heads”. A then expensive process and truly genius craftsmanship.
