A dark chocolate sweetened with measure, just enough to release the deep cocoa flavour, and clear notes of red fruits. An intense, elegant and bright chocolate with a long, rich and subtle acidic finish.
The image corresponds to the portrait of a Mahafaly woman (“Those who make taboos” or “Those who make people happy”). Located in the southwest of Madagascar, the Mahafaly people are particularly famous for the tombs they built to honor their chiefs and kings. Their tombs are made up of large stone squares surmounted by wooden sculptures called “Aloalo”, meaning “the messenger” between the worlds of life and the dead, and piles of zebu horns. The Aloalos are sculpted with geometric patterns and topped with figures or naive scenes from life. Mahafaly art is also manifested through some very characteristic hairstyles, as illustrated here.
