April 2014: The amazingly exquisite Benin Bronzes

I finally managed to see the Benin Bronzes which are in the British Museum. These are truly magnificent, you cannot really believe the quality and artisanship which you see here, dating back from the 12th century onwards, these are truly brilliant. Each of these bronzes have a story to tell (which I dont know about nor the explanatory plaques say so). Just look at them, they are simply amazing.
