Tintin Statue Arumbaya
Tintin - Limited resin figure Arumbaya fetish
The mysterious and coveted Arumbaya fetish is actually a pre-Columbian figurine from the Royal Museum of Art and History in Brussels.
The origin of this figurine is far removed from the Amazon region: it comes from the area around the city of Trujillo in northern Peru. The real museum piece does not have a broken ear, while the only way to tell the "real" image in the story is through the broken ear!
In Brussels, an arbaya fetish was stolen and then returned to the Ethnographic Museum. Meanwhile, a woodcarver, Mr. Balthazar, is found dead. Tintin discovers that the restored fetish is a copy and decides to investigate these two cases that seem to be related...
6th item in the "Icons" collection, the Arumbaya fetish comes from the album L'Oreille Cassée.
Arumbaya's fetish is an essential piece that has been the subject of several reissues, including pirates, already during Hergé's lifetime.
