This striking double head sculpture features two heads conjoined at the back; on top of the heads stand two exquisite figures representing an elephant and a leopard. One head displays a human face, whereas the other has more skull-like features such as a broken nose and a large set of white teeth. Gorgeous long black beads cover most of the sculpture. The neck and the two handles are covered in a beautiful combination of red and cyan beads. The two animal figures are covered in the same beads, which form an elegant checkered pattern on the legs and a zigzag pattern on their backs. The heads of both animal figures feature exquisite detail made from small red and white beads. A delicate brown necklace is fastened around one of the two handles.

For VINTAGERIOUS Guy Kuypers, the history of his collecting began at the Porte de Clignancourt in Paris with a Napoleon III case filled with Exotic Birds. The colorful birds piqued my imagination and became the beginning of a passion for Natural History, Ethnography, European Works of Art, Antiquities and Curiosities that drive me on all continents, looking for fascinating and rare objects. Whether they are natural or man-made, all have an interesting story to tell.

So, it is finally in this spirit that the collection, which encompasses Natural History,Tribal Art,Paintings & Sculptures and Curiosities from many cultures and periods in history finds its rationale and its roots.
