Rene Gallardo Original. Fetish. Mixed Media. Florida USA

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

Rene Gallardo is a Cuban American artist who uses mixed media to explore portraiture.  I do not know the exact description of this piece but it is comprised of a carved wooden piece with a head that resembles a human.  It is adorned with twine, feathers in a bottle and a safety pin.  The piece is mounted on a metal base.

I found this piece in Indonesia and was told that this fetish had powerful energy.
