A hard-toiling African woman living the hard life of a village, fetching water from kilometers away, to fulfill the needs of the family, has been immortalized in this hand-cast bronze statue made by artisans in West Africa, as she represents not just Africa, but the way of life of villages across continents.
1. Authentic traditional art of casting bronze from West Africa, called cire perdue or Lost Wax Technique.
2.100% hand modelled in wax, hand cast in bronze, copper and other alloys over a core of clay.
3. In direct lost-wax casting, every object produced is always unique and one-of-a-kind, as the mold is necessarily destroyed as part of the casting process. So, no two products are alike. They can be similar, but never the same.
