Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0806928719, Paperback)

Africa’s rich and diverse artistic traditions vividly express a spiritual view of the world. Here are line drawings of more than 300 fascinating symbols of their beliefs, with an examination of their cultural meaning: magnificent sculptures and masks from Western and Central Africa; stylized ornaments from North Africa and the Sahel zone; beautiful clothing, jewelry, and hairpieces of nomadic East Africa; and intriguing objects from South Africa.
