    Ornamental saddle made in the Venetian style and representing a black thurifer, in carved wood on a rocky base.
    The term thurifer (from the Latin turifer, "bearer of incense"), designates an altar servant responsible for the handling of the censer during mass or certain services of the Catholic, Anglican or Lutheran liturgy.
    Standing, the right leg resting on a pebble, the subject maintains a thin trunk to lift a small solid walnut tray, circular in shape and molded around its periphery. From his confident posture, the man seems proud to fulfill his role. Her bright face is directed upwards and smiles subtly, while her glass eyes gaze upward cautiously.
    The character wears the physical characteristics denoting his African origin, by his complexion made up of blackened wood and his frizzy hair. These are hidden under a customary cap. Dressed in a tunic fitted at the waist with a fringed scarf, this beautiful traditional costume ends with shorts and thin moccasins. From the headdress to the shoes, this natural wood outfit is finely executed with floral and stylized decorations.
    The whole is consolidated on a large tripod base with an irregular surface and three sides forming griffin heads, themselves resting on large ball feet.
    You will appreciate the combination of an applied and careful work, in warm shades of wood that makes up this sculpted and decorative sheath. Naked as accompanied by an exhibition object, this exotic furniture will bring finishing and detail to a tropical or daring decoration.
