Songye Masks and Figure Sculpture

This book is one of the leading sources on the art traditions of the Songye people of the the Democratic Republic of the Congo based on the author’s field research in the late 1970s. It deals with the well known masks and magical statuary of this people whose creativity has gained such extensive appreciation among Western specialists and amateurs of African art. The author presents an interdisciplinary perspective which brings into view social, cultural and religious aspects among the Songye thus providing a wealth of data for the understanding of the art traditions and styles that have once characterized that region. 189pp ; 133 photos + line drawings and maps ISBN : 978-953-97739-8-2
