This ecological-themed piece – rainforest wisdom – features a neo-tropical owl species, an under-canopy songbird and the profile of an ancestor – guardian of this realm. Cleverly composed, the Brunka tribal ancestor peeks out from beneath the forest fronds.
These very elaborate and almost narrative ‘ecological-cultural masks’ represent an artistic evolution emerging from the traditional Brunka ceremonial masks. Using the same wood species (balsa wood and tropical cedar), these smaller versions are very popular for their size and price tag.
