A WING BEAT is a world tour of the bird motif through cultures.
A universal symbol, the bird evokes energy and represents the link between divinity and the soul. It obviously means freedom, peace and love throughout ages and cultures. As an emblematic motif (like the eagle in the U.S., the crane in Japan or the cockerel in France), it features on many items. This exhibition shows headdresses expressing human creativity. The feeling of art in different peoples appears clearly here and will carry you away to a world of beauty.
