Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
A stark, stunning, display of African metal arts.
Stark and stunning indeed.
I love this exhibit. What kinds of tools are these? Are they weapons, farming tools?
The starkness of the exhibit goes well with how bizarre the pieces are.
Some were weapons, some tools, and others were ceremonial symbols of wealth or prestige. They dated from the early- and mid-twentieth century. This side of the case held all ironwork. On the other side were copper pieces (equally beautiful).
you make me want to be a better citizen of life.
