Ayubu African Figurine Bronze Sculpture: Height – 14cm (5,5in)
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.
Ayubu is a Swahili name meaning “Perseverance”. In Swahili culture men and older people command greater respect than women and young people. A man or older person walks in front, is given the best seat, and is placed at the front at ceremonies. A young person is expected to stand to greet elders and to listen with humility, never disagreeing. A child is given a “childhood name” usually chosen by a senior relative and an “adult name”. If the eldest child is a boy he is given his paternal grandfather’s name.
