Item description for The Art of Southern Africa by Sandra Klopper, Anitra Nettleton & Terence Pethica...

Features 140 objects, which come from Southern African countries including RS Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique, Angola, and Zambia.

Publishers Description
The Art of Southern Africa provides important new insights into the historical processes and cultural contexts that informed the production of carving traditions in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century communities living in this region. It includes ground-breaking research on a variety of art forms, notably the style and iconography of headrests and the figurative works associated with initiation school, indigenous patrons, and new foreign markets. A collaborative project between the private collector, Terence Pethica, and authors Sandra Klopper and Anitra Nettleton, The Art of Southern Africa celebrates the artistry of ritual and household objects, while at the same time exploring the complex values and ideas expressed in and through them.
