Sakalava necropolis of the Menabe region

The erotic statuary of these tombs is the perfect incarnation of this tribe's founding myth. According to Sakalava beliefs, each individual is a future ancestor and as a result a visit to the necropoli of the Menabe region is an edifying experience. Attending their rituals and visiting their cemeteries provide the perfect introduction to Madagascan cosmogony.
