Zulu Maiden African Figurine Bronze Sculpture

Height: 36cm/14in

The range of cold cast Bronze figurines and colour figurines are true reproductions of the native people of Africa. Each figurine is crafted on a bonded limestone core with all finishing details expertly done by hand. Cold cast figurines are all coated in a thin layer of cold cast bronze while the colour figurines are all painstakingly detailed with enamelling.

Cold – Cast bronze is made by mixing real bronze powder with a bonding paste and applying this to the surface of the figurine. This coat of real bronze is then burnished to a sheen.

Each figurine includes a captivating story card of interesting tribal customs and information.

Zulu girls are introduced to family chores by first learning how to carry water on their heads in a small gourd at first and then later in a clay pot. A girl learns to carry the gourd on her head by means of braided supports that her mother applies to her head. In the fields, she is taught how to plant and reap the crops and is even given her own hoe when she turns eleven years old.
