Precious Metals Black Africz (N° 19412)

Legendary, the fabulous gold resources of West Africa are well known. But in the collections, the jewels rarely date back beyond the beginning of this century. The others, the oldest, have mostly been melted down.
Laure Meyer has therefore endeavored to make the surviving documents speak for themselves. To make archaeology speak, to draw from oblivion the ornaments of a mythical queen of the Tuareg. To make speak the texts of the Arab authors of the Middle Ages, evoking the slow caravans loaded with gold which crossed the Sahara.
For gold as for silver, the techniques of the goldsmiths are exhibited here with precision, so that nothing disturbs this precious vision of a sumptuously adorned Africa.
