Sculpture – Semaphoric Metaphoric Bird

 

In Africa, birds are praised as their songs, their behaviour, their gatherings, are augural signs of forthcoming events of importance, such as rain.
Yet , as they fly in the sky, are often regarded as intercessors, mediators, literally pontives between spiritual entities or ancestors, and the people down on earth.
As such, they are expected to visit them in many forms, in dreams, in visions, or as an energetic presence.
They are then perceived figuratively or symbolically, in connection with animism. They are, in the proper sense, semaphoric…

En Afrique, les oiseaux sont célébrés car leurs chants, leur comportement, leurs rassemblements, sont des signes auguraux d’événements importants à venir, comme la pluie.

Pourtant, lorsqu’ils volent dans le ciel, ils sont souvent considérés comme des intercesseurs, des médiateurs, littéralement pontifs entre les entités spirituelles ou les ancêtres, et les gens sur terre.

En tant que tels, on attend d’eux qu’ils leur rendent visite sous de nombreuses formes, dans des rêves, des visions ou en tant que présence énergétique.

Ils sont ensuite perçus de manière figurative ou symbolique, en relation avec l’animisme. Ils sont, au sens propre, sémaphoriques…

So, a sculpture can be at the same time, a sign and a metaphor.

Ainsi, une sculpture peut être à la fois un signe et une métaphore.
