Description

Cameroonian crosses from West Africa, in an assortment of fascinating designs. Handcrafted in lost wax bronze, one of the first known methods of working with molten metal. The artisan sculpts wax, then coats it with clay and allows it to dry. Molten bronze is poured into the mold, melting the wax and allowing liquid bronze to fill the shape. After the metal cools, the artisan breaks the clay, revealing a one-of-a-kind figure. Each sculpture is created individually; each is unique.
