Having this sculpture makes your home look more comfortable and attractive as possible, it serves to beautify any area it is placed around your home.
The people of Benin made many different kinds of art. Village craft workers made simple pots, weapons and tools. They carved masks for ceremonies and they molded sculptures of gods out of mud. In Benin City, craft workers were organized into groups known as guilds. There were guilds for wood carvers, ivory carvers, leather workers, blacksmiths and weavers. Most important of all was the brass casters’ guild. They were only allowed to work for the Oba (king). The art of Benin features people, animals and gods. It provides a fascinating guide to what life and religion were like in the kingdom of Benin.
