Embodiments : masterworks of African figurative sculpture by Christina Hellmich( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Richard H. Scheller Collection, presented in this book and on display at the de Young in San Francisco, offers a diverse portrait of sub-Saharan African sculpture. More than 100 distinct ethnic groups from more than 20 present-day countries are represented in this book by works of art spanning several centuries and encompassing a broad range of styles, from realism to abstraction. In their original contexts, these objects represent ancestors, express community values and serve religious and ceremonial purposes. Beautifully photographed in natural light, these sculptures range in style from classic and iconic to rare and unusual and challenge commonly held assumptions about African art. The geographical breadth of the collection and the variations in the depictions will allow readers to explore both the histories and the formal qualities of the genre. Enlightening texts by leading scholars enhance the understanding of 122 key objects, alongside main texts on major sculptures and the nuances of the artistic canon as it pertains to more unusual works of African art.0Exhibition: De Young, San Francisco, USA (31.1.-5.7.2015)

Hair in African art and culture by Niangi Batulukisi( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The exhibition, Hair in African Art and Culture, and this book serve to introduce a mode of African art too little and too infrequently recognized or appreciated. Field photographs and sculptures sample the rich variety of hair arrangements that exist or have existed in traditional African life and art. Despite the many references to the abstract character of African masks and figures it is clear that two areas of the real world were accurately, indeed realistically, depicted: scarification and coiffures." "Essays and notes address a number of aspects of African and African-American hair and collectively hint at the variety, complex meanings and history of hair styles. Some of the essays are personal, some present the nature of coiffures in the cycle of life: from birth to death, from celebration to mourning." "In traditional and modern Africa, and the African-American diaspora, hair styles establish a personal identity that reflects both fashion and aesthetic choice."--Jacket
