Extractions: They have also hunted it for its abundant meat, strong hide, hair, bone, and precious tusks. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that the elephant has nourished the African imagination. Its image is creatively transformed in African art and literature. The rich and enduring presence of the elephant in African art reflects as much about human society as about the animal itself. When elephant steps on trap, no more trap. The image of the elephant appears on some of the most important ritual objects used in ancestor veneration, masquerades, and rites of passage. Yet it also adorns humble domestic objects (combs, food bowls, heddle pulleys) and commercial products (beer, detergent, and postage stamps). Sometimes the elephant is depicted in isolation, other times it is part of a complex scene.

Extractions: ART and MUSIC - Akwaaba Special West Africa Travel Art: In recent years it has become apparent to students of African Art that in order to understand the inherent complexities present in most African works of art, it is necessary to consider both the perspectives of the conventional Western assumptions and the indigenous perspective. This presents problems because it is difficult for Westerners to fully understand the indigenous perspective given the longstanding Western imperialistic involvement in Africa. In the traditional discipline of art history, the importance of African art has been long relegated to the role of catalyst or raw material for the creative genius of Western artists such as Pablo Picasso. However, with Susan Vogel leading the way with her Baule, African Art; Western Eyes , we are beginning to take steps toward a new look at African art - one which appreciates the methology in Western art history, but also considers the complexities of the visual art traditions of the peoples of Africa.

Extractions: A frican art - Ceremonial sculpture masks , and crafts produced by African tribal cultures , as well as by the African cultures of colonial and post-colonial periods. Generally African art means sub-Saharan art, with the cultures of Africa's northern parts typically referred to as Egyptian and North African. Making generalizations about the visual culture of any group of people is a crude endeavor, especially with a culture as diverse as Africa's. With this thought in mind, know that this survey, as any must be, is tremendously limited in its breadth and depth.

Extractions: Chapter Six Art in West Africa This chapter looks at art as it was created in the context of community life, an artistic form linked closely with spirituality. It also analyzes art subsidized by royals and describes how that art reflects a certain political economy. Art forms changed as states developed in West Africa, but it also changed with the arrival of Europeans. These changes are discussed as well as how African art has influenced European artists. West Africa stands high in art production. Such European artists as Vlaminck, Braque, Derain, Picasso and Modigliani (see Photo 6.1) were influenced by African art forms, as anyone familiar with their works can see. Since human beings make non-utilitarian things and perform music and dances that do not seem to produce an economic payoff, we might ask why. In West Africa, we cannot begin to answer this question without a knowledge of the social and religious context in which art was created, performed and displayed. West African artwork is usually a symbolic statement of social significance. It is often associated with secret societies. Many of their masks were used to instruct initiates and relate to various social responsibilities, such as fighting fires and making peace. http://witcombe.sbc.edu/ARTHafrica.html

Extractions: This is a period of economic revolution. Revolution through the opening up of the Black continent for the streaming through of world trade; revolution through the introduction of the exploitation of its precious raw materials and its agriculture; revolution through the introduction of modern currency; but revolution especially through the sudden mobilization of its sparse and isolated populations, who will be thrown into a colossal and glorious adventure against their will, into which nothing and no-one will prepare them and whose first stages are going to be very painful for them. (1) "Shut your mouth! I don't want to hear any-thing about your politicians and their revolutions" replied an old man in a refugee camp when he was asked his opinions on politics. "It's your politicians and their politics that bring us to exile today. What good have we poor illiterate people got from your big book and politics? Is it not only death and hardship?"
