Kuba Visions of Africa (N° 19482)

This volume explores the intriguing sculpture and decorative art of the Kuba people of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Best known for their royal figures (ndop), considered one of the greatest sculptural achievements of sub-Saharan Africa, the Kuba have in fact produced few independent sculptures. Instead, they focused on a variety of decorative works indicating success and achievement, and on pieces related to initiation such as masks.
The first book devoted exclusively to this subject, Kuba examines the artistic development of the tribe from the 17th century to the turbulent colonial and post-colonial periods. The authors also explore the impact of Kuba beliefs on their art and discuss the pervasive concerns that influence the tribe's artistic creation. With fifty beautifully reproduced examples and an engaging and informative text, Kuba is a fascinating introduction to African art.
