Yaka Visions of Africa (N° 19475)

The Yaka, a tribe of the southwestern Democratic Republic of Congo, have been producing figurative statuettes, masks and other objects that have fascinated Western researchers, collectors and explorers for more than a century.
This impressive book brings together some of the earliest and most visually striking examples and explores their use in installation and initiation ceremonies and healing rituals, examining their relationship to leadership, divination, and witchcraft.
Colonial influences as well as "anti-fetish" religious movements are studied for their impact on traditional Yaka art. The book includes eighteen black and white illustrations and drawings accompanying the text, sixty-two color plates with commentary, and an annotated bibliography.
