Metal sculptors in Burkina Faso use a lost-wax casting method to create beautiful works of modern African art.

 

This stunning sculpture features a singing griot playing a balaphon. Across West Africa, griots utilized oral tradition to share history, praise, poetry, and cultural norms through music, recitation, and dance.

 

Sold singly, with complementary griot sculptures available.

 

Because this is a handmade creation, each will vary slightly.
