Burkina Faso gathers hugely talented craftsmen and women mastering several techniques, of which lost wax casting is a major one.
Our Aisha figurine (arabic name meaning "Woman full of life", "womanly") is a wonderful representation of this technique. It embodies the beauty of the african woman, the grace and internal strength of the african feminine mystique.
