Benin Bronze Warrior Figure

Powerful and strong, the Benin Bronze Warrior Figure is a statue honoring the king, or Oba, of the  Benin Kingdom who ruled in the 14th century A.D.

Originally fashioned in his image, the bronze warrior figures were later crafted to represent members of his court and his most honored soldiers.

Bronzes from Benin are considered one of the most valuable cultural treasures of Africa. Each piece is unique, sculpted by hand, and then cast in bronze.
