AUTHOR

Woodward, Richard B.

SUMMARY

This eloquent, intimate portfolio links full-page, full-color photographs to brief, readable text to unveil the myths and mysteries of African art and the people who created it. Five recurring themes in African art -- the human image, objects for personal and ritual use, ceremonial masks, and animal symbol and image -connect some 50 objects from 22 sub-Saharan cultures.Gold and bronze jewelry, ceremonial objects of carved and gilded wood and bone, terra cotta figures, as well as a sampling of textiles, are illustrated. Brier descriptions place each object in its cultural and geographic context. Special features include colorful maps of historical and present-day Africa, many photos that illustrate how the objects appear in actual use, and comments on the purposes, forms, and complexities of African art.Woodward, Richard B. is the author of 'African Art' with ISBN 9780917046377 and ISBN 0917046374.
