Vintage and handcrafted in the Congo D.R.C., this relief, hammered and sculptured work of art shows daily life as seen by the artist, as in this picture of a tribal mothers carrying their children and baskets of food while crossing the river.
Copper art is popular in the Congo, due to the abundance of it in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. 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 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.
Placing on an easel or framing the copper will add beauty and a touch of Africa to your home. The photo is an example of how the copper art can look matted and framed.
