Sonja Ferlov Mancoba (1911-1984) was a notable Danish sculptor whose work often embodied surrealistic and abstract forms. Born in Copenhagen, her early influences came from traditional African art and European surrealism. Her sculptures are characterized by their totemic shapes, hollowed-out figures, and the integration of organic and anthropomorphic elements, offering a dialogue between humanity and the broader universe. Merging personal, historical, and political narratives, Ferlov Mancoba's work reflects her deep engagement with universal themes of interconnectedness and humanity's shared destiny. Her art gained more recognition posthumously, today she is regarded as a pioneering figure in 20th-century modernist sculpture, with her pieces being displayed in major museums and collections around the world.
