SUPERB  OLD GAN AFRICAN JEWELRY  
LOST WAX BRONZE 
bracelet of a  CROCODILE 
BURKINA FASO 
MEASURES APPROX : 4" w BY 2" 3/4 h

the inside is 2" 3/4

 It has supernatural powers. This is a ritual object  of the "sindi simba" (plural supernatural entities) a Ken Moro hero and considered a powerful amulet amongst the Gan.

 
This bronze bracelet  was made by using the  old technique of lost wax  casting or (cire perdue).

The figure or wax model  that is hand shaped is  surrounded by a coating of clay, it is then heated and hardened which liquefies the wax and creates a cavity or  mold when the wax is drained out.  When the bottom of the mold is sealed the molten bronze is  then poured into the cavity of the mold leaving the metal figure. which is a one of a kind  and original because the clay mold is destroyed after each casting.
