About Our African Masks

 

At Gallery Preira we pride ourselves on having built up one of the best collections available of high quality ethnic African tribal masks.

This collection of work has been sourced by Nivaldo Preira using his extensive network of contacts in Africa.

These African masks come from the west of Africa, Burkina Faso, Guinea Bissau, Guinea, Senegal, Cameroun, Ivory Coast .....

These masks 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 Masks.
