Our sculptures are made by artisans of Yaounde Craft Center in Cameroon. They are mostly inspired by African environment with for example wild animals, warriors or musical instruments such as Balafons, and are made with exotic woods like ebony or paduk.
These sculptures, even if they are for decorative use, they have nevertheless a cultural or traditional symbolism, such as the pregnant woman, symbol of family perenniality, the monkeys of wisdom, representing one of the keys to happiness, or even the Fang masks, which refer to the Bantu ethnic group of the same name found in several Central African countries such as Cameroon, Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
