EDO IMAGES 16th CENTURY & 17th CENTURY CLASSICAL PERIOD

Edo bronze castings and Ivory carvings rank with the best of global antiquity. Many cultures in European and Asian antiquity produced excellent bronze casts, but Edo City produced the best metallurgist capable of casting with fewer flaws or flashes. The finished sculptures were lightweight and had a uniform thickness. Both Europe and America used African metallurgist to help them solve difficult problems concerning metal casting. An African slave cast the lady on top of the capitol building. The art of Edo Ivory carving is rivaled by no other ivory carving produced elsewhere.
