Burkina Faso gathers hugely talented craftsmen and women mastering several techniques, of which lost wax casting is a major one.
Our figurines are a wonderful representation of this technique. It embodies the beauty of the african woman, the grace and internal strength of the african feminine mystique.
Open in October 2000, the Ouagadougou art village brings together in a space of creation, production and trade, the works of more than 500 craftsmen and women, in order to promote Burkina Faso arts and crafts.
