Double-Headed Figure from Easter Island

February 1, 2003-December 31, 2003
Location: Faith-dorian and Martin Wright Gallery for Oceanic Art
Curator: Dorit Shafir
Found in 1870 by a Chilean naval mission, this rare figure was considered a visual manifestation of the spirits of the deceased. The two heads indicate the omnipotence of the spirits, who can survey the visible and the invisible realms simultaneously. Faith-dorian and Martin Wright Gallery for Oceanic Art
