Himba Mother African Figurine Bronze Sculpture
Height = 37cm (14,6in)
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 Himba rub a mixture of red ochre and fat on their bodies to protect them from the sun and to give their appearance a rich reddish colour. The women are known for their intricate hairstyles and beautiful traditional jewellery made from iron and shells and even their children are adorned with jewellery.
