As objects of veneration or spiritual mediation, tribal statues play an essential role in the cultural and religious life of traditional African communities.

An impressive diversity of styles and techniques used. From wooden statues carved with accomplished delicacy, through stone statuary, to bronze statues of astounding precision, each work testifies to the skill and creativity of African artists.

African statues are highly prized for their remarkable aesthetic qualities. Their elegant forms, expressive faces and meticulous details capture the imagination and provoke admiration from collectors, researchers and art lovers, the world over.
