ARHA 295

This is not a comprehensive survey of all African art. It focuses in depth on the art of a limited number of past and present societies in Africa and raises certain broad theoretical problems. The aim is to gain a taste of the formal variety, technical richness, cultural depth, symbolic meaning, historical complexity, and dynamic transformations of sub-Saharan African art.
