African ANIMAL hook - TURTLE
These adorable animal hooks are handmade by artisans in Ghana. Each piece is unique and will look absolutely perfect in a child's room, in an entrance hall or in a bathroom!
Ghana is famous for its centuries old technique called “lost wax casting”. First, a wax model of the desired object is made, next the model is covered with ash and clay. Once the clay is hard, it is put in fire causing the wax to melt. The resulting mold is then filled with brass. After the brass has cooled, the clay mold is broken open and you end of with these wonderful little objects.
Size: approx. 12 cm (5"), sizes may vary as each item is one of a kind!
