The pachira (pachira aquatica) is a tropical plant whose flowers give edible nuts. Although native to South America, its symbolism is strongest in Asia. According to the Chinese tradition, its palmate leaves resemble hands that catch the good fortune of which the twisted trunk becomes the guardian.

Also popular in Japan and Taiwan, it is often used for ornamental purposes and makes a great housewarming gift by guaranteeing happiness and prosperity to the new home.

The fruits of the pachira are those of the work of art:
To the one who cherishes it, it will exalt his artistic passion and his interior.
To the one who invests, it guarantees a safe, even prosperous investment.

Jeune danseur marquisien


Young Marquesan dancer.

Is it the apprehension of having to perform in front of an audience or more likely the melancholy caused by a spirit escaped in search of its lost roots that is expressed in the eyes of this young dancer preparing to dance to the rhythm of the pahu ?

“The laughter is in the heart
the word in the eyes
the heart is a traveller
the future is random.”

Jacques BREL
