  • reated using the ancient lost wax technique, this bronze sculpture of a mother giraffe in repose is a lovely gift for any mother who has taught a child the ways of the world, or for anyone who appreciates these statuesque creatures. To create this statue, makers first build a model made of beeswax and encase it in clay. Once the clay hardens, the wax is melted to create a mold of the figure inside. Liquid bronze is poured into the mold and once it sets, the clay is broken to reveal the bronze figure. This technique dates back hundreds of years and provides much needed employment opportunities to people in Burkina Faso. Bronze statue 7Lx4.5H inches Handmade in Burkina Faso (Africa)
