1.1 BACKGROUND HISTORY
In the world of production, there are many techniques for working e.g wood carving – This means chipping away parts of log or plank to arrive at the required form. Metal construction – this involves the joining of metals when sufficient temperature is applied using filler rods called electrodes. Casting- which explains the pouring of liquid metal, plastic etc.
Come down to adaptation of technique, casting is the making of an object by pouring liquid substance like metal, plastic etc into a mould and allowing it to cool and assume the chape of the mould. In the execution of sculptural pieces, cement is assumed to the medium. Cement which is to be used in casting in mixed with send in the ratio of 2:1. Water is than added to make it fluid and plastic so that the mixture will be able to enter into all the depressions on the clay positive. The execution of the coal mines has been one of the sculptural works in Enugu metoropolis that depicts the scope of this study. Before the arrival of the British colonial government, the geographical area was made up of many nationalistics, among which between 250 – 350 were later brought together to constitute the current Nigerian state. The area was naturally going through the process of enlarged communities and people moved across ethnic boundaries to maxmise threats. The House- Fulani were involved in balance of power tussle with the Yoruba, the Yoruba were involved in similar tussle with the Dahomeys (Republic of Benin). The Igbos too were engaged in a balance of power tussle agains Benin, Igala and some other rationalities. None of the actors was able to enjoy over balanced power, and there was no consciousness to bring a Nigerian nation states. As the contradictions of Nigerian unitary system mature, those in charge of the state become more and intolerant. Yet the use of force and brutal exptoitation does not being the country near peace.
