This fascinating bronze sculpture depicts a leopard, with its magnificent spotted coat hand crafted into the surface. The leopard is held in high esteem by the Benin people, who view the animal as strong and powerful, as well as a symbol of justice. Great significance is placed on these creatures who are seen to rule over the savannah just like a King. Showing signs of its age, this sculpture certainly has a remarkable story to be uncovered.
