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 string xalam instrument. Across West Africa, griots utilized oral tradition to share history, praise, poetry and cultural norms through music, recitation and dance.

Sold singly, with complementary griot sculptures available. Because this is a handmade creation, each will vary slightly.
