Availability: In stock (2)

WAS $84

This touching bronze sculpture of an expectant mother highlights the love a mother feels for her baby even before birth. Burkina Faso artisans cast it using a lost wax casting method, then hand-paint the details of the dress and headpiece. 

Artisans in Burkina Faso convey the serene beauty of feminine Africa in bronze, cast with the lost wax method: the sculpture is carved in beeswax and a clay mold is formed around it, then the wax is melted away, leaving a void to fill with molten bronze.

Designed to sit on the edge of a ledge, shelf or table, this sculpture measures 4.5"L x 2.25"W x 6.5"T.

Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, some variation will occur.
