Legend: Colonial art, to which the sculptures of Jane Tercafs belong, offer several multidisciplinary research possibilities. In this case, the anthropologist will be interested in the little prince, in the role that he played in society and how he was depicted. The art historian will study the context of the creation, artist, model and how he was represented, the aesthetics and the technique; the historian will examine the colonisation of the region and the relationships between the colonisers and the colonised in the interbellum period; the geologists will explain why this small piece of Belgian granite is appreciated by the sculptors and what qualities it offers.
