Item description for Mankon: Arts, Heritage and Culture from the Mankon Kingdom by Jean-Paul Notue...
This book presents the artistic and cultural production of the small kingdom of Mankon located on the high plateau of Western Cameroon. Featured are objects which are linked with rituals, of prestige or more ordinary pieces all bearing the memory of the treasures of kings, notables and secret societies. Their production plays a fundamental role in cultural continuity, protects evidence of the past and preserves objects used in rites for the well-being of society. This is why they form an essential part of the artistic and cultural heritage of the whole of Mankon. They are extraordinarily rich, both regarding the quality of the objects, by the diversity of domains they approach and by the variety of decorative patterns, styles and themes.
