Galerie Meyer invites you to discover a selection of wood carvings from Oceania and the Arctic Circle. In our exhibition space with its antique parquet floor, you will discover large-format sculptures - monumental & ritual architectural elements, as well as sculptor's tools such as a series of rare and remarkable adzes. Rare, small, archaic wooden figures from the Pacific Islands and the Arctic Circle will also be on display.
