Overview

Ancestral figures, objects of magical power, masks, and insignias of secret societies--African objects are imbued with purpose and intrigue. Their significance for Westerners has changed dramatically from the time when they were viewed as anthropological artifacts; today they are seen as works of art. Here, new photography records the movement of people, styles, and ideas that have passed through sub-Saharan Africa in concert with the main rivers that flow through it. Those rivers played a significant role in the shaping and spreading of the worldviews of the peoples who inhabited it and the art they created.
