Yoruba Bronze Ritiual Vessel W Yemoja Deity
The ancient Yoruba city of Owo was established in the ninth century, and is located near the Benin City, the capital of the Benin kingdom. Although this was a highly vulnerable position, the Yoruba not only survived but managed to carve out and sustain a sizeable kingdom of their own in pre-colonial days. The city of Owo flourished during the 15th and 16th centuries primarily because of its location along the well established trade route connecting the cities of Ife and Benin. These early trade routes significantly contributed in bringing the Benin art to the early Yoruba peoples, and Yoruba art, especially the metal work, was notably influenced by trade with the Benin Kingdom during the 16th century. The Yoruba are traditonally a very rich and vibrant culture, having a long history of art which is deeply rooted in the Ifá literary corpus, indicating the orishas Ogun, Obatala, Oshun and Obalufon as central to creation mythology. The traditional art forms among the Yoruba include beading, tattooing, clay moulding and ceramic work, bronze casting, weaving, dyeing and wood carving. This Yoruba bronze ritiual vessel is topped with the deity Yemoja who is a mother goddess; patron deity of women, especially pregnant women; and the Ogun river. Her parents are Oduduwa and Obatala. There are many stories as to how she became the mother of all saints. She was married to Aganju and had one son, Orungan, and fifteen Orishas came forth from her. They include Ogun, Olokun, Shopona and Shango. Other stories say that Yemaya was always there in the beginning and all life came from her, including all of the orishas. This rare vessel also features many other figures and was created by the lost wax casting method. Lost-wax casting sometimes called by the French name of cire perdue (from the Latin cera perduta) is the process by which a brass or bronze sculpture is cast from an artist's carving usually made from wax. Very intricate works can be achieved with this method, depending on the carver's skills.This rare and amazing Yoruba made African Art statue / vessel measures 19 inches tall by 10 inches wide with a diameter of 27 inches and weighs 13 pounds 15 ounces and the top portion is removable. Sometimes these Yoruba vessels are referred to as Ju-Ju pots.
