Genesis: Ideas of Origin in African Sculpture

This exhibit at the Met Museum "seeks to shed light on the act of human creation as a broad and recurrent theme of African art." While the exhibit includes works of 17 distinct African cultures, it "explores in depth the nuanced complexity of one noteworthy classical sculptural form, the ci wara antelope headdress of the Bamana people." The book by Alisa LaGamma, is a Metropolitan Museum of Art publication. Out of print, MetPublications makes it available as a free download. [posted: Mar 04, 2004]
