These are reproductions of the originals from the ancient kingdoms of Benin in present-day Nigeria.

They are made using the lost wax technique.

The kingdom of Benin is linked by tradition to the Yoruba people. Its founder was, it seems, Eweka, a prince linked to IfÉ, considered by both Benin and the Yoruba to be the sacred city, the one that houses the skulls of dead sovereigns.

*All products are made by hand so there may be some variation in shape and size.
