The contextualization of the ethnographic materials from the place of origin often makes  impossible to understand the meaning of their iconography.

In this case the meaning of the iconography of a sculpture has been explained by some photographs taken on the field.

It is a special iconography, a human figure who holds another on the shoulders.

The realism of the gesture found in the sculpture well  represents the reality of  the rite.

Carrying the Oracle on his back, it is like to carry the God on his back.

Physics and metaphysics come together in the real life and in the iconography of this sculpture.
