Carybé 2 – Orixás – Bahia Brasil

MAFRO (Museu Afro-Brasileiro) – The highlight of the museum is a room lined with 27 huge, breathtaking carved wooden panels by Argentine-born Carybé, who is perhaps Salvador’s most renowned 20th-century fine artist. The panels are stylized depictions of orixás (deities of the Afro-Brazilian religions), inlaid with shells and metals.  1P11606422P11606373P11606494P11606395P11606416P11606407P11606448P11606369P1160645
