Lost Wax Bronze Cast Woman and Child with Book


There is so much nurturing and grace in this poignant iron statue. It is a one of a kind cast bronze by Burkina Faso, African artist Kofi Awudu. Each casting produces just one statue. He first carves his form in beeswax, covers this with clay, then pours bronze into this mold. He actually has to break the mold to get the figurine out. Literally - one of a kind!

Kofi Awudu's dream is to encourage African women to learn to read, and then to teach their children. This loving caregiver is 3.5 inches tall and her base is 2.5 by 1.5 inches. Note: due to the size of this item, actual shipping charges will be less than indicated on you order.
