African Copper Art Fisherman With Pipe and Rod - Congo - 23.5" X 15.5"
Fisherman In Water With His Catch
This intricate realistic work of art is handcrafted in the Democratic Republic of the Congo where copper is abundant., and shows great detail of the Bearded Fisherman with his catch, preparing another fish for the basket home while smoking.
Large sheets of copper are flattened so that the artist has a base to draw the image on; the copper images are then hammered until the art is clear and complete, The sheets of copper have scratches and/or indentations which the artist works around and it becomes a part of the art.
Each artist shows an aspect of daily life in the Congo that is important to the artist.
These 3 dimensional copper works of art can be framed or placed on an easel.
The last photo in this listing shows copper art that I have framed as an example.
Approximate Dimensions: 23.5" X 15.5"
