"On the basis of more than 650 mostly unknown objects from over 50 private European and American collections, the great variety and the power of African artistic work in terra-cotta, iron, bronze, gold and silver across the continent is presented. Sculptures, masks, sacred and profane artworks, weapons and primitive money, created from these materials, often by hitherto unknown cultures, make out of this volume a first rate reference book. An introduction, an essay treating the drawback of returning cultural assets, and entries from 9 experts on African art, as well as an exhaustive bibliography complete this book." (back cover).
