 The sculpture named “O Pensador” (i.e., The thinker) is one of the finest figurines 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 figures, carved in wood to determine the fate of the inquirer. Dressed up with warm earth colours, rich textures and sensations, the cupboard O PENSADOR, embodies and transmits this imaginary traditions of an African people, which will give any room a sense of strength and distinctive personality.
