African Art & CultureBook - 2004
Why are the mud mosques in northern and western Africa rebuilt each year? What do the different colors in bead necklaces symbolize? What are fantasy coffins? Arts and crafts offer a window into African culture, reflecting its history, technology, beliefs, and every-day life. Every piece of African art tells us something about the environment and the culture it was developed in, so that we can see how and why people make their art.
