About Our African Tribal Art

 

These figures have been used in real ritual ceremonies. It is for this reason that the wood has a smooth, lived-in quality.

Traditional African art also called "Art Negre" can be subdivided into a mulitude of local art forms. The diversity of african art shows great imagination and an intensity of witchcraft which reveals the omnipresence of the sacred.

The true passion of african art is to respect an object in its wholeness and its context. That is to accept, for example, a splash of dried blood claimed during a sacrificial ritual.

We hope you enjoy our large and exciting collection of African tribal art.
