Casting Memories

Nigeria’s artistic and cultural legacy was stolen by an invading British military force in 1897. Today, those looted objects (aka the Benin Bronzes) remain on display in the Smithsonian, and other museums.

We wanted to honor the people of Benin by remembering them and create a way to experience their art beyond the museum.
