Secrets of ivory (N° 19745)

Art plays a fundamental role for the Lega of the Democratic Republic of Congo, as a symbol of achievement, a tool for learning and a memorial for the dead. These refined and elegant works of art are an integral part of the Bwami initiation society and are used to teach moral and ethical lessons. Like language and performance, the works of art become visual phrases: the ideas they convey express the values of the lega society and its ideals. This book, structured by a text that clearly explains the functioning of the Bwami in charge of teaching moral, social and political values, presents a wide variety of exceptional works in a wide range of styles (hats, necklaces, spoons, belts, masks, statuettes...).
