3rd quarter of the 20th century - Very good condition

Height : 33 x 27 cm

Among bronze animal depictions in Benin art the leopard appears most frequently. As "king of the forest" his reputation is as great as that of the Oba, or king. Killing a leopard was a privilege of the Oba, who had his own association of leopard hunters equipped with "special powers" which enabled them to kill these animals without losing their own lives"
