Insiders Congo Basin (N° 19685)
In sub-Saharan Africa, being initiated means first of all that one has followed, over a long period of time and under trying conditions, a specific education reserved for a category of individuals. Secondly, certain rules of behavior specific to the group from which one comes are shared with other people, most often of the same age and sex. This book, which brings together texts by art historians, ethnologists and anthropologists, reveals how and why many ritual practices in the Congo Basin are linked to a wide variety of objects: masks, statuettes, insignia, ornaments, musical instruments... The works reproduced here come mainly from the Royal Museum for Central Africa in Tervuren and the Dapper Museum, from public (Museum aan de Stroom in Antwerp, Wereldmuseum in Rotterdam) and private collections (Museum aan de Stroom in Antwerp, Wereldmuseum in Rotterdam).
