Old African Bronze Hairpin / Lobi Tribal Burkina Faso Pin / Lost Wax Cast /
Vintage Tribal Jewelry

material: bronze

history: Old African bronze hairpin from the Lobi people of Burkina Faso. This
is a cast bronze piece made using the lost wax technique which has for theme
water animals and plants. The central figure is a fish which seems to be
swiming in the waves but the round circular figures could represent nénuphars
which flower after abundant rains. A really pretty and fine piece.

See pg 60 of "A World of Rings..." by Anne Van Cutsem.
