We Welcome you to the Art of West Africa. The debate as to whether these objects are of pure ethnographic interest or within the world of "fine art" has been quieted with the recognition that these powerful and beautiful objects live in both worlds. Here is art, in the truest sense of the world, with "anonymous" artists... we do not know the names of the individuals or groups who created these pieces, but the lack of a signature on a piece only demonstrates that the culture did not provide for "signature" as we know them. When was the piece created? We have to be careful so that we are not biased by dates. Whatever the culture, African or Western or Oriental, the age of a work has never been a guarantee of its quality.

Here at the Art of West Africa we have amassed a collection of pieces that are stirring, powerful, sometimes sexual, haunting and strangely eerie. We invite you to ask us for more information about those pieces that interest you. Rather than attempt to classify the collection by culture or people (for the most part would be an error to believe that homogeneous people in certain, defined areas, existed) or by objects names (I.E. "masks, "weapons" etc.) we offer our collection to collectors and others appreciative of this art form. Our collection results from many years of of collecting and numerous trips to West Africa.

Our Museum Quality collection offers those works which we consider either extremely rare or unusually beautiful or "pure" example of a work or both.

Our Decorative collection represents carefully selected, although more affordable works.

We will make additions and updates to the site periodically . Please feel free to contact us for inquiries as to availability of objects not shown here. family lawe
