Description
For the Yoruba of Nigeria—one of Africa's oldest and most influential cultures—art and spirituality are often intertwined. As shown in this overview of the Bernard and Patricia Wagner Collection—which features more than 60 color illustrations—the Yoruba's religious sculptures easily bridge the gap between cultures with their creative use of materials and often whimsical style. Babatunde Lawal's introduction provides a history of this thriving culture, as well as examining the symbols and materials that the Yoruba use to create their art.
