Product Description

This museum -quality piece is a 20th century Benin bronze statue head that is sculpted by hand, then cast in bronze. Beautifully made, with plenty of details and lots of tribal scarifications on the face.

The art of Benin is described as a court art because it is closely associated with the king, known as Oba. The tradition of bronze classroom objects from the Benin Kingdom dates back to the 14th century. The many bronze alloy heads and statues created by the artists of Benin were reserved for the exclusive use of the inhabitants of the royal palace and, more often than not, placed on altars consecrated by each new Oba. They were used to commemorate an oba and get in touch with their spirit.
