Collection: Benin Handicrafts

Beninese handicrafts are renowned for their artistic and cultural significance. These crafts hold a significant place in the heritage of the Kingdom of Benin, located in present-day Nigeria.

The history of these handicrafts dates back to The Oba's palace which was once home to skilled craftsmen who produced brass, ivory, and other intricate works of art.

The Benin Bronze sculptures, made primarily of cast bronze and carved ivory, were created for the court of the Oba and are iconic examples of Beninese artistry.
