There’s a special window open to you to discover Madagascar. The Palais de la reine introduces you to Malagasy culture in all its wealth and diversity through the talent of the Malagasy artisans. Three key terms convey the essence of the Palais de la reine: art, beauty and culture.
Every object you’ll discover there has a history that of its creator, of course, but also of the ancient skills that creator used in making it. Passed on from generation to generation, these techniques are a source of pride for families, but also a way for them to make a living. The “homemade”label so sought-after by lovers of these crafts is there every time.
The Malagasy earth, a common point for all these artists, is an inexhaustible source of inspiration. While some borrow its red-orange tint to print on a material like fabric, others will use it as is in their paintings to create magnificent masterpieces, or be inspired by what the earth yields. The Palais de la reine warmly welcomes you to discover Madagascar and its art, beauty and culture.
