Zulu Chief African Figurine Bronze Sculpture

Height = 32cm (12,6in)

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 Zulu tribal chief is called an `inkosi`. He is regarded by his people as a father figure – the source of their wealth and well being, the spiritual symbol of his people, and the man who determines their fate. He is also an arbiter and a person of reverence and respect. Dingane was the half brother of the famous king Shaka and Dingane, who had contested the throne, had Shaka assassinated in 1828 and then became king himself.
