Traditional carved African sculpture served a variety of roles for ancestor spirits, magical spirits, educational tools, implements of social control, divination, witchcraft, fertility and ornamentation to utilitarian objects.  Most were made of wood, metal, bone and stone with additions of horn, teeth, animal skin, beads, plants, shell and fiber.  Our exhibit includes figures  from the Ekoi, Kwese, Kuyu, Mumuye, Pende and Yoruba, Masai and Arussi shields, and Nagu fetishes.
