A beautiful tribute to motherhood and African literacy, artisans in Ougadougou, Burkina Faso, handcraft this bronze sculpture using the lost wax method. Depicting a slender maternal figure in a skirt and head wrap reading to her baby, this decorative piece will sit elegantly on a bookshelf or desktop. A sentimental gift for any mother, this sculpture honors both the sacrifices of a mother and the tradition of handcrafted African art. Curated by Swahili African Modern.
Each sculpture is unique, and colors will vary.
