Turkana Warrior African Figurine Bronze Sculpture

Height = 35cm (13,8in)

The range of cold cast Bronze figurines and colour figurines are true reproductions of the native people of Africa. Each figurine is crafted on a bonded limestone core with all finishing details expertly done by hand. Cold cast figurines are all coated in a thin layer of cold cast bronze while the colour figurines are all painstakingly detailed with enamelling.

Cold – Cast bronze is made by mixing real bronze powder with a bonding paste and applying this to the surface of the figurine. This coat of real bronze is then burnished to a sheen.

Each figurine includes a captivating story card of interesting tribal customs and information.

The Turkana tribe are related to the Maasai tribe and live in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya, just above the equator. They are a semi-nomadic tribe and they dress in traditional clothing made of bright red material which is wound around their bodies like a skirt. They are also well known for their multi-coloured beaded jewellery.
