Mid 20th century - Good condition
Wonderful large and heavy Benin leopard in bronze. For the Benin people, the leopard is a mighty and powerful royal animal, which rules the savanna as the king rules over his people. It also serves as a symbol of justice. The details of this statue is magnificent, the tribal configurations are sublime.
This bronze leopard is of very high quality and made using the "lost wax" method, where the mold is lost during the casting process. Therefore, they are unique pieces.
Due to the primitive process the objet shows some casting flaws, which gives it extra charm. The leopard has a beautiful green patina of age. See the pictures.
