“You belong to my beloved land,
the one that
does not fit in to the eyes.
I see you in a peaceful and
serene mood, without a look,
a voice or movement,
You were born
from the baobabs silhouettes,
In this beloved land of mine.”
The sculpture named “O Pensador” (i.e., e thinker) is one of the fi nest fi gurines from the
tchokwe tribe, as today it is recognized as a reference and a symbol of the Angolan culture.
It is said that it has its origin in north eastern Angola where there is a divination basket
(ngombo), and the guesser uses small fi gures, carved in wood to determine the fate of the
inquirer. Dressed up with warm earth colours, rich textures and sensations, the cabinet O
PENSADOR, embodies and transmits this imaginary traditions of an African people, which will
give any room a sense of strength and distinctive personality.
