Time honored texture and form define this Nigerian copper sculptural object. The intricate geometry was achieved through a process known as scarification. The artisan would meticulously trace and retrace their carvings to create the definition and discoloration exhibited here. A woman of status used this anklet as both ceremonial garb and as an expression of her day to day wealth. It has been mounted on a custom steel stand.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
