Africa The Art of a Continent (N° 20907)

Ranging from the oldest known human artifact, circa 1.6 million years B.C., to pieces made from memory, the objects collected in this volume reflect a continent of enormous cultural and historical significance. Arranged chronologically in seven geographic sections, it presents a range of sculptures in wood, bronze, stone, and gold, as well as rock paintings, ceremonial pieces, ceramics, jewelry, and textiles from private and public collections around the world. Commentary by renowned scholars illuminates the cultural and historical significance of these pieces, and in-depth, authoritative texts highlight key aspects of each region. Together, these words and images take readers on a grand artistic journey across a continent of unparalleled diversity and toward the exciting discovery of not one Africa, but many.
