Huge bronze hornblower, BENIN tribe, Benin City, Nigeria, approx. 1980
Rare, humongous, incredible bronze statue of a hornblower from the Benin tribe in the region Benin tribe from Nigeria. Spectacular statue! Deeply detailed and sublimely shaped by the method of lost wax, in which the mould is lost during the moulding process. Because of this, it is a unique piece, a unicat. With slight traces of use and aging, it is in good condition. Look carefully at the photos!
