Description
This impressive figure, costumed in abstract motifs, radiates an aura of benevolent magic. He is perhaps a shaman or a priest in the service of the alligator God, the central deity of the cocle pantheon. Centuries ago, he was placed in a tomb to help the deceased enter the realm of the spirits. With bold, simple lines and lively painting, the artist has created an image of enduring power. The progress of civilization has not dimmed the impact such a work has on the soul. In its presence we recognize that many questions about life, death and the nature of the Universe remain unanswered. - (PF.1476)
