The structure is heated and the melted wax runs out through the channels or wax rods, molten metal is poured into the mold, created after wax was lost - the metal cools and hardens, the mold is broken and the piece has been created. Each piece is an original since the mold is broken after each one has been cast.Origin: Dogon ethnic group - MALIMaterials: Bronze
