Fair Trade Camerounian Blackened Brass Hut Miniature


Handcrafted of recycled brass using the "lost wax" method of casting at an artisans' cooperative in Bamenda, Cameroun, this blackened brass hut miniature is a wonderful example of traditional West African ornamentation, design and a brass finishing technique known regionally as blackening.  The exquisite detail and decoration on the piece were achieved using finely woven wax threads which is a hallmark of "lost wax" casting.   The brass alloy was made from recycled metal.  It measures 2 3/4" tall.
