Bronze a look into the past

Sand Casting bronze is the oldest way to craft bronze sculptures:The artist creates a pattern. Then they place it in a sand-packed flask (box).They add a binding agent to harden the sand and make a mold.They pour molten bronze and let the metal cool.
The sand casting may remain as is or go through other finishing processes.
One example of our bronze sculptures collection is a sand-cast bronze titled Wedding Ceremony. This lovely bronze sculpture is perfect for display in your library, office, or as a centerpiece in any room. The sculpture captures the movement of a wedding party as they glide across the water in a ceremonial boat. This particular piece is from the Dogon tribe, a ethnic group indigenous to the central plateau region of Mali, in West Africa, south of the Niger bend, circa mid 19th century.

Wood and Sculpture

 Nkisi Power Figure

Before you an amazing piece of African culture I call “ The cild spirit”. The visual aspects of this piece has memorized me, full of pain and beauty. This hand crafted composition was directed by the village Nganga ( spiritual leader) to the skilled carver. More than just sculpture this piece of art is about the transition of a child spirit from one existence to another.Explained further, what we see are three very important figures within one sculpture, a sculpture of great depth and meaning for the Bakongo peoples and individuals that surrounded it, a village within the great Kongo.

The dog is an important part of the Bakongo culture representing a means of travel from life,  toward the spiritual world of the Bakulu in nature, the forest where the souls of the village ancestors live. The dog is not seen as a pet, but as a hunter companion, protector, and part of the spiritual guide for the child lost.

This Nkisi Nkondi is a religious vessel holding a variety of Bilongo medicines to further a spiritual awakening that this Mangaaka uses to invoke spiritual forces.

Trends in Contemporary Art

We also work with artisans from the Senegambia Craft Market who create African jewelry depicting native animals and cultural symbols. These brightly colored necklaces and bracelets make beautiful gifts. The artist's craft African jewelry with glass beads and cords.

All of our African jewelry is hand-made by local artists with traditional methods. For example, Lampwork uses a fixed directional flame to melt the glass into individual and unique glass beads.

If you're searching for authentic African jewelry or bronze sculptures, you can conveniently purchase these original works of art from our website. Please feel free to contact us with questions via email or by phone.

Art by Nature

Inspired by their organic surroundings and their culture artist use a mix of vibrant colors as set in nature to transform a blank canvass to capture the truths that exist in their environment, truths that are the real nature of life, love and beauty a beauty that inspires the gifted artist to create.

DEDICATED TO THE ARTIST AND SHOP OWNERS IN THE REGION

Our gallery and staff are dedicated to the future success of the artist and shop owners we represent. Currently the shops and artist are facing life changing difficulties, because of the world pandemic a decline in the tourism trade now exist. The artist depended on sales from those who vacationed in this beautiful region of the world to survive. This region with all its diversity and cultural history is kept alive by the individual artist who create their masterpieces using techniques handed down to them through the centuries.  Now sales are non existent affecting the artist and shop owners and the inability to sell their crafts. To make matters worse the artist and shops are loosing the buildings that housed their shops and crafts for generations due to road devolopment with no thought for their relocation. Because of this this Gangeh Galleries was created to give the artist and shop owners a way to be noticed and sell their goods. With every purchase funds are allocated toward the sale of merchandise with money going to artists and shop owners, and the rest is put into a relocation fund where they can start over and can stay permanently. Gangeh Galleries does not profit from sales of goods and is solely wishing to help through sales and donations. Meet the people who are responsible for the running of Gangeh Galleries and are committed to promoting the art we display and the artists we partner with. Get in touch to learn more about our collections and exhibitions.
