Metal sculptors in Burkina Faso use a lost-wax casting method to create beautiful works of modern African art. This stunning sculpture features a singing griot playing a talking drum. Across West Africa, griots utilized oral tradition to share history, praise, poetry and cultural norms through music, recitation and dance. Because this is a handmade creation, each will vary slightly.
