Tribal Art Black Africa (N° 19636) Deposit sale

This reference book is the result of an in-depth work on the various cultures of the tribes of Black Africa. Each of them is presented through its most significant ritual and functional objects, thus allowing a clear vision of its different styles. The result of a complex creative process involving several people - the commissioner, the village diviner, and the sculptor - African art objects always had a religious, social, or magical function and were rarely created for purely decorative purposes. Initiatory ceremonies of passage to adulthood, births, weddings, circumcisions, funerals, ceremonies related to harvests..., at each event, at each ancestral rite, its mask, its statue, its crest. The works selected in this book were created between the beginning of the first millennium and the first years of the 20th century, before Western interest in so-called primitive arts gradually diverted them from their primary function.
