DESCRIPTION

Drawn from an extensive private collection of African art in Savannah, Ga., this special exhibition includes sacred, meaningful objects created by numerous peoples in sub-Saharan Africa. Works of art in various media—wood, bronze, terracotta, sandstone and cloth--from regions as diverse as Cameroon, Guinea, Tanzania and Zaire present examples from the visual and material culture of Africa that demonstrate cultural concepts and religious beliefs.
