African tribal art – our collection of african masks and statues

The creation and usage of african tribal art for ceremonial or ritual purposes is widespread in africa. Masks and figures play a very important spiritual and functional role in the community. For collectors it is the spiritual and the aesthetic aspect that makes the african tribal art, for us especially the masks and figures so interesting. Collectors with mainly interests in ethnological respect will look more for the differences in the produktion and function of tribal art.Africa is widespread with many tribes and different cultures. What items of tribal art do we collect?

We believe in the miracle in african tribal art. African masks and figures have their sole expression, that together with their unique shapes and forms goes directly into the heart.We are deeply impressed by the items. We want to share this feeling with others interested in authentic african masks and figures.

During the times we have gathered a lot of experience to read the patina of african tribal art. This helps us together with the feeling of an outstanding expression of a figure or a mask to select old and true african tribal art.

On the other hand: We are not speaking about modern artefacts.
