Art Description

Sculpture: Bronze on Bronze.

The Ancient Benin Warrior bronze artwork is a very rare bronze masterpiece. The bronze work was originally sculptured by a Bronze sculptor from the Benin Kingdom called Omo Edoosa. His master piece is famous among the royal family of the Benin Kingdom. Believed to be made in the late 18th century, Omo Edoosa was commissioned by the Royal Chiefs of the Benin Kingdom to sculpt 7 rare masterpieces for the royal family. The plan of the Chief was the present this 7 bronze sculptured work to the Oba of Benin at his Yearly Igue Festival. The Igue festival allowed the Benin Kingdom indigence to showcase its rich Cultural Heritage. Omo Edoosa did not fail in the task given to him by the royal chiefs. He delivered all the 7 bronze masterpieces and they where presented to the Oba of Benin. The Oba of Benin held on to the bronze works for another 10 years in his royal palace. This work called “The Benin Warrior” was one among them. At the 10 years, the Oba of Benin gave out three of the bronze art work made by Omo Edoosa, to three high chiefs for the hard work and dedication to the royal palace. The chief includes the Iyase of Benin Kingdom, Izomo of Benin Kingdom and Ero of Benin Kingdom. The Benin Warrior bronze art was given to the Iyase family. Then was sold to Chief S.U. Igbe.
