Artisans in Ougadougou, Burkina Faso, handcraft this beautiful tribute to literacy in Africa from bronze, using the lost wax method. A slender feminine figure in a blue skirt and head wrap sits with her legs crossed demurely while she reads a book.
Each sculpture is unique, and colors will vary.
Dimensions: 4"L x 5"W x 11"H
