Salt cellars, spoons, forks, dagger handles were all produced using decoration of both European and African inspiration, sometimes simultaneously carved in the one piece; for example, women with European skirts and X-shaped scarification marks.

Students will probably think Monet loved his garden and wanted to remember it. The decoration on the neck is so slight as to be almost unnoticeable, and the hair is trained upwards in a high horn-like style.

Overview of Introduction to African Art

During the Renaissance, pottery was used in Italy for major sculptural projects, including the large-scale glazed and coloured sculptures of Luca della Robbia and his family, which are among the finest works in the medium. It is a ceremonial mask carved of wood and it Sculpture of Black Africa book meant to be worn during a ceremony.

Their statuettes and miniature masks in ivory are often of great beauty. African sculpture exerted a not inconsiderable influence on painters such as Andre DerainMaurice De VlaminckPicassoand Matissemost of whom were greatly stimulated by the expressionistic features of the primitive statuettes and masks that arrived in Paris from French colonies in the African subcontinent.

Throughout this time, ivory was used mainly in relief, often in conjunction with precious metals, enamels, and precious stones to produce the most splendid effects. Generally speaking, the capacity of west African tribes as craftsmen is not high, and their productivity is small.
