Bronze Knife with Sheath - Benin
A truly captivating piece, this cast bronze ceremonial knife is the kind of item you cherish for life. An absolutely stunning example of Benin bronze, this piece would have been carved out of wax and then covered in clay. Once fired, the wax would melt while a mould of the piece is created with the clay. Molten bronze is poured into the mould, resulting in a wonderfully detailed piece of weaponry and art.
