Art Description

T he large forest peoples have always attached a particular importance to the skull as the seat of the vital forces. Remembering the deceased ancestor, is not a cult per se, but, in ancient times, the culture was oral, an important memorial object.
The living receive life of their known (and remembered) ancestors and their transmission of cultural inheritance linked to the origins.
The ancestors thus become intermediaries between the living and the dead.

      Thank you Lady Fi, we, per se, all have ancestors, lucky those who can link to them!
