African Copper Art Tribal Beauty Pounding Maize 15" W X 23.5" H

$ 650.00

Vintage and handcrafted in the Congo D.R.C., this 3 dimensional hammered work of art shows daily life as seen by the artist, as in this picture of a tribal woman in her finery, grinding maize with Intricate detailing of the design on the pot, the clothing and the detailing of the facial features, earrings and accessories, while she's comfortably sitting outside her thatched roof home.

Due to the abundance of copper in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, working with it as art has been a popular use, as nothing is really discarded. Large sheets of copper from the mines are flattened so that the artist has a base to draw the image on; the copper images are then hammered and fired until the art is clear and complete.The sheets of copper have scratches and/or indentations which the artist works around and makes it a part of the art.

Signed By the Artist

Shown on Handmade Stand made of Rescued Wood from the Forest of South Africa just for the copper art.

Placing on an easel or framing the copper will add beauty and a touch of Africa to your home. The last photo is an example of how the copper art can look matted and framed.

Approximate Dimensions: 15" W X 23.25" H
