African art forms and rites (N° 20906)

Is it a work of art? Yes, certainly, a great work of art. But not art for art's sake, in the Western way. It is an object heavy with religious meaning. To see it in a purely aesthetic light would deprive it of much of its power. In Africa, most sculptures have a hidden religious meaning that doubles their visual aspect. When one understands the reason for a work of art, one better perceives its profound nature. The purpose of this book is to reveal the mysterious side of African works.
