STORY

Bring a millennia-old crafting technique into your home with the Lost Wax Freedom Statue. This statue of a dancer in an arabesque, wearing blue colored skirts was created by skilled artisans in Burkina Faso. This piece of fair trade African art was sculpted first in wax, then covered in clay. When the clay hardened, molten recycled bronze was poured into the clay mold, melting the wax, and hardening inside. Lastly, the hardened clay was shattered, revealing this one-of-a-kind art piece for your collection.
