Project Description

OSANI | MIRROR

The Osani Circle is a game played by Efé children of the Ituri tropical forest in the Republic of Congo. The round mirror represents the spirit of mutual help present in this tribe.

The ebony wood captures the effect of the childrens’ outstretched legs around the center, and the aged gold leaf bring to mind the soles of their feet and sun-bleached heads. The round decorative mirror has the perfect form in which the flow of energy is identical and of equal value; without beginning or end.

The story beyond this handcrafted luxury piece offers a special meaning to any interior design project. The Osani Circle photograph was taken by Belgian anthropologist Jean-Pierre Hallet in the 1960s (All Rights Reserved: see pdf); Hallet lived many years with the Efé and loved their community traditions.
