This African Hornbill Statue from the Senufo Tribe of the Ivory Coast of Africa, is one of the creation myth animals. The Hornbill is also a clan symbol for the Senufo tribe. Statues representing hornbills, the mythological founder of the Senufo people, are used in the Lo and Poro society as symbols of fertility. The Hornbill birds, called Setien or Porpianong, when carved to represent procreation have their long hooked beaks touching their protruding stomachs that have been fertilized, therefore being the carrier of life and a symbol of continuity to future generations. The wings are usually represented as a square board, often carved or painted with geometrical patterns.
