Inhaltsangabe: In Africa, beaded ornaments may mark an individual's progress through life, and intricate woven fabrics chronicle the deeds of warriors and kings. "African Elegance" delves into the ways in which such traditional objects as masks, jewelry, and wooden vessels are used in contemporary African society.
From the vibrant, carved coffins of Ghana and the treasures made by sixteenth-century Benin metalsmiths to the sleek objects in serpentine crafted by the Shona sculptors of Zimbabwe, "African Elegancce" dynamically explores how native Africans display themselves, exchange messages, and tell stories through craft. An object as beautiful as the work it celebrates, "African Elegance" is a stunningly photographed chronicle of art and personal adornment.
