About

Benin (Nigeria) bronze sculptures of leopards from the mid-20th century Offered for sale is a pair of modern mid-20th century copies of Benin (modern-day Nigeria) bronze figural sculptures of leopards. This large and impressive pair of leopards are life-size and make a strong decorative statement. The original Benin bronzes are a group of more than a thousand metal plaques and sculptures that decorated the royal palace of the Kingdom of Benin in what is now modern-day Nigeria. Collectively, the objects form the best-known examples of Benin art, created from the thirteenth century onwards, by the Edo people, which also included other sculptures in brass or bronze, including some famous portrait heads and smaller pieces. These leopards are replicas of the original Benin bronzes.
