WHO ARE WE

What is the Benin Bronze NFT: Cultural Exchange Project?

A collection of 1,897 unique Mask themed NFTs with hundreds of attributes inspired by the Benin Ivory / Bronze Masks. Each artwork is unique, with its own Benin Bronze Ivory Mask, global citizen cultural attire, hair style and jewelry.

The Benin Ivory Masks are a part of a collection of artefacts known as Benin Bronze, miniature sculptural portrait in ivory of Idia, the first Iyoba (Queen Mother) of the 16th century Benin Empire. The Mask is by far the most notable of the Benin Bronzes.

The Benin Bronzes are a group of metal plaques and sculptures that were created to decorate the Royal palace of the mighty Kingdom of Benin, in what is now present-day Edo State, Nigeria in West Africa. The mask is an iconic image of Benin and considered amongst the most celebrated works in world museums such as London, Stuttgart & New York. The mask in the UK alone is estimated at £3.5m-4.5m

What Are We Trying To Achieve?
