The Benin Bronzes are famous in African art history and still remain a subject of contention as many of them were stolen during the colonial period and placed in European  museums.  Nigerian artists have retained some of the lost wax skills that were used to produce the amazing original pieces which reflected the complexity and sophistication of the Benin Kingdom.  This small piece is a well executed image of an Oni or what we would call a king.

Dimensions: 10″ Tall, 17″ in diameter
