Why are African art collectors so passionate about the objects they collect? Is it the exotic beauty, the power, the artistic style that intellectually stimulates our imaginations? The objects combine a mystery and spirituality connected to it's past cultural, social and religious meaning. Collectors say the objects have a life of their own. Some collect by material used, by size, geography, by form, function, workmenship and style of the object. Age, patina and provenance of an object are important but they do not define the object's meaning to a collector. Unlike paintings, these objects can be touched, felt and carried around giving one a tactile sensation. African art stimulates our curiosity, provokes emotion and in some part helps feed our souls.

We hope that collectors will appreciate this showcase of African material from older acquisitions of Robert Fiedler's collection. Please check back as our displays often change. Thanks for your consideration.
