Description

PRODUCT DETAILS
Handcrafted wood structure finished in ebony veneer and aged gold leaf in high gloss varnish.

The Osani Circle photograph was taken by Belgian anthropologist Jean-Pierre Hallet in the 1960s (All Rights Reserved: see below); Hallet lived many years with the Efé and loved their community traditions. He was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize while working to ensure their survival.

In 2013, the human circle inspires Joana Santos Barbosa to create a round mirror that represents the spirit of mutual help in this tribe, thought to be one of the oldest on earth.

The ebony veneer captures the effect of the childrens’ outstretched legs around the center, and the aged gold leaf brings to mind the soles of their feet and their sun-bleached heads.

The circle is the perfect form in which no side stands out. Like every child, every part of this mirror becomes essential to its balance where the flow of energy around center is identical and of equal value; without beginning or end.
