Description

An exquisite ancient art form mirrors another. This statue, crafted in deep bronze hues with touches of verdant patina, portrays a woman in the serene lotus position, her arms gracefully raised above her head. The Lost Wax Yoga Sculpture embodies both elegance and resilience, serving as a distinct symbol of the strength found in tranquility.

The creation process of this sculpture begins with a beeswax model, which is then enveloped in clay. As the clay solidifies, the wax is melted away, leaving a hollow mold of the figure. Molten bronze is then poured into this cavity. After the bronze solidifies, the clay exterior is shattered, unveiling the bronze figure within. This ancient โ€œlost waxโ€ method has a rich history spanning several centuries and offers vital livelihoods to artisans in Burkina Faso.
