An Exclusive Lacquered Sculpture made from Papier-Mâché!

Some Buffalo symbolism includes manifesting our desires, the Earth element, bravery, kindness, strength, and respect. Buffalo Spirit walks a sacred path, knowing the planet is truly a holy space and living creature. All things under Father Sky and on Mother Earth connect through Buffalo Medicine.

The buffalo is the traditional symbol of Vietnam, representing bravery, happiness, and prosperity. Buffalos also play a very important role in all Asian agriculture, being a farmer’s most valued possession and often treated like a member of the family.

For the Sioux and the Lakota people, the buffalo was held in high regard. The buffalo was respected as a symbol of the divine because the buffalo was a “banquet” for the people. The creature gave up its own flesh and life to feed them.

Since Native Americans once relied on Buffalo and Bison for many of their day-to-day needs, including clothing and food, these creatures have also come to represent abundance, self-nourishment, prosperity, and contentment.

Our Story

Jayav Art is a social enterprise which transforms recycled paper into environmentally friendly sculptures while creating decent jobs for vulnerable people. The adventure began in 2010 when Philippe Brousseau, a French artist of great renown was touched by a Cambodia ravaged by 30 years of war. Then, he met his Cambodian counterpart Tara, who was also passionate about papier-mâché art and who had the same desire to promote this local art that was still unknown internationally. Philippe and Tara wanted to create their eco-friendly artwork with conscience. It’s why they focus on an environmentally friendly approach, realizing that every step they take affects the planet and the people on it. Read more

How do we make sustainable art work from papier-mâché?

Firstly, all of our sculptures are entirely handmade with recycled paper and vegetable fibers. Then, they are decorated with natural pigments and acrylic colors. Finally, our environmentally friendly manufacturing process makes it possible to recycle old newspapers. As a result, our papier-mâché artworks are lightweight while appearing as heavy as any other sculpture. This means they are easy to ship. Read more
