A BEAUTIFUL CHOICE
TRADITIONAL AFRICAN IRONs
Echoing the exhibition Striking Iron, which is currently on display at the Musée du Quai Branly - Jacques Chirac, WeArt is pleased to present a wide selection of fascinating traditional African irons.
Compared to classic sculpture these touching testimonies, cast, hammered and worked in iron, copper, brass and other alloys, are insufficiently known. Nevertheless heritage has passed down a multitude of iconic shapes that come from traditions as varied as the elaborate Opa Osanyin staffs used by Yoruba priests, or elegant currencies symbolising agriculture in Cameroon, Chad or Nigeria, or war in Gabon or Congo
The selection that WeArt is proud to bring, represents an amazing variation of expressions and highlights once more the well known talent and technical mastery of ancient African blacksmiths.
