ealing with African art across the continent in its variety and its characteristics, this book invites the reader on a journey in four stages:In the first part, tracing the major periods of African civilizations, we find that sometimes these arts date back millennia. Due to the appetite of boring, old pieces of wood are rare, but exceptional terracotta have been updated recently.In second place, it is possible to identify certain formal principles, stylistic, from landmark works: The statuette or mask. Thus, the mask is not only facial: It becomes helmet, knife, helmet, crest, amulet was added several faces, attire ...A third part focuses on the arts "minor" who created the conditions for a major art form. Functional room (spoons), ornamentals (jewelry) may have a ritual dimension and humble creations are often strongest in the aesthetic.Finally, it will accomplish a huge geographical journey to see that African creativity is immensely varied and plastics solutions, countless times each were unexpected. My opinion:After an initial discovery of African art, this book allows you to enter a little more into the "meanings" ... approached with an open mind magic, superstitions ... try to understand or rather feel that makes the African soul ...This is a fascinating book that reads like a novel!
