Last Update:

African tribal art has many dimensions.
Masks are used in village ceremonies,
danced to placate the spirit world, to
propitiate good health and harvest, to protect deceased loved ones on their journey to the other world, to discipline and educate, and more. Carvings are made to protect the village from bush spirits or to please a spouse in the other world. Textiles are created to clothe, decorate,
and demonstrate domestic skills. Jewelry is crafted to adorn the body. Pottery, musical instruments, and implements are made to reinforce cultural values and bring beauty to every day life.
