"Bronze and Prints are two art media, which evoke much passion in Nigeria today. The former is old, time-honoured, historic and royal while the latter is new, exciting, and amenable to experimentation. The mention of Bronze immediately calls to mind the role which Bronze plaques, created by Benin artists, played in immortalizing the glory of the erstwhile Benin Empire. Even today, bronze casting is still very important as a medium of artistic expression in Benin City. Added to this background, Elizabeth and Peju are both daughter and granddaughter of the Benin monarch, Oba Akenzua II, the custodian of the great culture which the art has helped to preserve. It would be very difficult for these two artists to have resisted the urge to adopt bronze as their primary medium. But Elizabeth had a great obstacle to overcome before she would use bronze to cast her pieces. At the point she started her practice, a traditional taboo in Benin City prevented women from the all-male profession. She negotiated and got permission from her father, the Oba, to practice bronze casting. This became a breakthrough as a pioneer artist, for herself and Nigerian women artists in general. Here lies her importance in the development of contemporary Nigerian art."--Bruce Onobrakpeya, page 4
