4 painted Bronze African Miniature Animal Dancers
I found these wonderful African miniature bronzes at an estate sale. The collector had very nice ethnic and tribal art pieces, that were not new. I am not sure of the age or the exact tribe associated with the maker of these pieces. I give my age estimate based on the other pieces in the collection. They are probably lost wax and assembled in pieces. They are painted. The tallest is 3". The animal masks are the heads for the human form dancers. You see a snake, crocodile, bull and Lizzard. A really unique and valuable set of African folk art.
