New acquisition in my collection, sculpture by Marguerita Hagan

Rongorongo by Marguerita Hagan

My latest acquisition. A mall pit fired ceramic sculpture by Philadelphia Artist Marguerita Hagan. From her Rongorongos. This is the smallest of the series it is about 5 inches tall.

The Rongorongo shout out a once diverse and abundant life on the Pacific Island. The thriving Rapanui culture and its lush landscape fell to devastating deforestation. With restoration at work today, the island of Rapanui in all of its mystery leaves a clear and profound message.

You can see the whole series here:
