June 23 offering of African tribal art sparks wonder and joy

Humans make art, and making art makes us human. Nothing brings this fact into sharp relief quite like looking at tribal art and artifacts. Hundreds of groups, communities, and bands of people–some still with us, some long vanished–used, and continue to use, whatever materials are available to them to express themselves, tell their stories, and nourish their souls. You don’t need to be a member of the tribe to appreciate the creativity and the beauty of these pieces.

Undated Dan tribal mask, estimated at $2,500-$3,000
