A Magnificent large Benin bronze of the Royal Guard 24" tall, ca end of 19th century probablly from the rape of Benin by the Brirish in the 1890s.The  Royal guard is seen with a large shield in his right hand and a tribal weapon in his left. He wears a medallion of winding snake on his neck along with more decorative necklaces. This bronze looks old and aged enough to boldly suggest it to be from the original Benin land.
