Each band of motifs repeats icons commonly found in the Grasslands repertoire. These icons have a symbolic meaning: the lizard and elephant motifs allude to royal power, the frog motifs refer to propagation and increase, the stylized spider motif to peace and protection, and the humans to the King’s retainers and supporters.

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.
