Pictures inspired by Benin plaques
The Obas of Benin portrayed themselves as strong, powerful and to be feared in the pictures they had made of themselves. We tried to make pictures of ourselves as we wished to be seen. We included things that might be important to us in our pictures. See if you can work out the message we are sending in our pictures of ourselves.
 The Benin plaques were made with molds and were crafted with great skill and artistry. We had a go at making a plaque with card and foil! With a filter, the effect is pretty impressive!
