WORLD ART AFRICA BOOK

       
50 masterpieces of African art. Selected treasures from the great museums & collections of the world, in addition to remarkable discoveries, are explained vividly & authoritatively.

Three millennia are revisited, from rock art of the Sahara & terracotta figures from the "lost" cultures of Nok & Sokoto (first millennium BC), to bronzes from the Kingdom of Benin (16th century) & the banners of the Asafo corporations (20th century).  

The range of amterials knows no bounds: bronze, gold or ivory, wood, terracotta or cotton are all represented.

Important ethnic groups & religions of Africa are included, among them the Dogon, Bamana, Senufo, Yoruba, Chokwe, Luba & Shona.

The area covered is vast, encompassing the carpets of the Berbers of Morocco, beadwork by Ndebele women of South Africa, saltcellars from Sierra Leone in West Africa & Makonde masks in the east.

This book consists of four chapters, each beginning with a brief introduction to the area concerned: Central, East & southern Africa, West Africa, and Mediterranean North Africa. Each of the "icons" chosen is accompanied by a description of its notable artistic & iconographic features. The result is an informative survey of African art, shown through a selection of its outstanding achievements.
