Description
African art is both colourful and expressive, taking directly from the experiences of life and instilling them in their art. This particular figure shows a prominence and a realism in his character. The elongated face, covered in red paint accentuates the features and the proportions allowing for a greater range of emotions and expressions. The decoration on the figure is simple with only a necklace. However, it is the face that captures the most imagination and interest, becoming the vehicle to promote understanding of the African culture. - (PF.4009)
