Details

Document Type: Article
All Authors / Contributors: Jan Knappert
OCLC Number: 38373523
Notes: Knappert, who is best known for his research on Swahili oral traditions, surveys here Swahili material culture. He covers musical instruments, architecture, pottery, weaving, basketry and mats, metalwork, ivory work, boat building, carved wooden doors and frames, manuscript illumination, plasterwork and leatherwork. Although this is an introductory survey of Swahili arts, Knappert uses Swahili names for objects and materials discussed and sets them within the context of changing lifestyles of the Swahili peoples today.
