These bronze buck statues, originally made by the Edo people from the Benin kingdom in Nigeria, were created in honor of their king.
In Benin, the antelope is highly regarded because of its alertness, agility and quick sense of wit.

We love everything we’ve purchased from Sarza! And as expats we’ve bought quite a few things. The South African artists and craftsmen (and women) have a unique eye and talent. So glad Sarza makes this available to us in the States.
Dear Kristen. Thanks so much for your amazing support - we appreciate your love of all of our product.
We recently bought two bronze antelopes made in Nigeria. They are gorgeous and compliment our family room beautifully. Sarah gave us the history of the Edo people who made the sculptures and offered them to us at a very reasonable price. She is a delight and the store has a unique collection that would add enormously to any house. i strongly urge everyone to visit and experience Sarza for yourself.
Thanks for this lovely review Julian - thanks for visiting Sarza - we loved your visit and appreciate your kind words.
