African Masks & Carvings
African Mask: One can easily argue this to be the most iconic form of art in Africa. African Masks are more than just art. They embody the true nature of tribal expressionism, religion, rituals and ceremonies. With hundreds of tribes and cultures across the African continent, Masks do a great job in detailing the history behind each tribe and its cultural significance through time. Depending on geographical location, African masks are traditionally made from hard wood, bronze, copper, textiles and sometimes pottery.
