Bronze Bakota combs are typically handcrafted using the lost-wax casting technique, which involves creating a wax model of the comb and then encasing it in clay. After the clay mold is hardened, molten bronze is poured into it, replacing the wax and taking its shape. Once the bronze cools and solidifies, the clay mold is broken, revealing the finished comb.These combs often feature intricate and elaborate designs, showcasing the artistic skill and creativity of Bakota artisans. They are characterized by their unique shape, which typically consists of a handle or top part and a row of teeth or prongs. The handle is often adorned with decorative elements such as geometric patterns, animal motifs, human figures, or symbols with cultural or spiritual significance.
