Featuring a rich array of magnificent artworks from the British Museum and beyond, this book showcases some of the most exquisite works of wood, stone, ceramics, beadwork, textiles and metalwork from Africa from the Mediterranean coast to the Cape and from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean. Beginning with an introduction to the very nature of African art, each of the artworks is then explored within its wider cultural and historical context, with chapters relating to contemporary art, masquerade, specific materials such as cloth, precious metals, wood and iron, gender, tools, and arms and armour.
