Bronze Knowledge of Literature Sculpture
Our Bronze Knowledge of Literature Sculpture is an elegant salute to the mission of women's literacy in Africa. In her vibrant red outfit, this bronze woman stands tall while engrossed in her book. This handmade Fair Trade statue would be exquisite standing proud on a bookshelf or desk. A beautiful gift for a reader or an educator.
Handmade using the lost wax method by Fair Trade artisans in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. The lost wax method starts with a figure being carved out of wax. That wax figure is covered in a plaster cast. Once the cast dries, molten bronze is poured into it. The molten bronze melts the wax, and when the plaster cast is removed it leaves only the bronze statue- hence the name "lost wax".
Handmade Bronze Knowledge of Literature Sculpture measures 5" long x 4" wide x 13" tall. Due to the handmade nature of the art, each piece varies slightly.
