Culture: Sakalava Madagascar
Description Statue of a wild cnobble goose
Material: Erroded wood

Size : 71 Cm

A ritual bird sculpture. These sculptures were placed around the Sakalava graves, bird sculptures were combined with human figures.
The birds were the carriers of the sole to heaven, but also the symbol of fertility and long life love.
The Sakalava skulpture has a very powerfull expression of ‘love, death, sexuality and fecondity’.
Most of the statues go back to the 19th century.

Piece sold by Esprit de l’Art - Belgium. The galery is based in front of the museum of fine Arts in Antwerp – Belgium for more then 25 years.
