Testa di re OBA a grandezza naturale 42 cm - Bronzo - Benin - Nigeria

Descrizione
Testa di re OBA a grandezza naturale 42 cm - Bronzo - Benin - Nigeria
metà del XX secolo - Buone condizioni

Beautiful life size head of a OBA King in bronze. The King has a very typical hat with tribal figurations.

This statue is of high quality and was made with the “cire perdue technique”, and is therefore unique in its kind. Beautifully finished off in detail, it has a wonderful brown, green patina.

Almost all Benin art was created to honor the king , or Oba, who has reigned, with his ancestors, from the 15th century. Each is sculpted by hand, then cast in bronze.

Good condition, but with signs of use and normal holes of cast glitches. Please study the photos well.
