Exhibit Details

This lavish exhibition, drawn from one of the most encyclopedic private collections on the east coast, features more than 100 pieces of art. Included are a hauntingly strange Yombe nail fetish, classical Nigerian statuettes, a geometrically-stylized Songye mask, and an eerily powerful Kota reliquary – as well as ancestor figures, decorative throwing knives, and a very rare full-figure Kuba dance costume. An essential reference for collectors and scholars and a visual delight for all.
