Noble, whimsical, and mysterious animals inhabit African landscapes and evoke storybook imaginings across the globe. Considered a royal icon among the people of Benin in Nigeria, the leopard is a strong symbol for the strength, danger, elegance, and power of the Benin king. 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.
