Archaeology in Africa
Tribal art > African art books > Archaeology in Africa

As construction and infrastructure works (highways, railways, mines, urban and industrial areas, etc.) accelerate and expand, it is no longer possible to ignore the dangers that bulldozers pose to the remains of the past.
Moving from a hasty rescue archaeology to a true preventive archaeology, which studies sites, cultures and landscapes before development takes place, the time has come - in Africa as elsewhere - to reconcile the respective requirements of scientific research, archaeological heritage management and economic and social development. In this volume, some twenty African and European researchers identify the issues at stake and address new perspectives for preventive archaeology in Mauritania, West Africa and the continent as a whole.

The presentation that you are invited to appreciate is one of the results of a long-term work that Mrs. Durieu has been undertaking on Burkina Faso for many years. It reflects her passion for ethnography and African art, as well as her friendship for the cultures of Burkina Faso.
Burkina Faso, otherwise known as the country of men of integrity, is also a country of culture, rich and diverse, which should be appreciated at its true value, within the framework of this new ethic of cultural diversity promoted by UNESCO and the international community.

Abomey s bas reliefs
Tribal art > African art books > Abomey's bas reliefs

The bas-reliefs of the palaces compensated in part for the absence of writing in Fon culture and constituted visual narratives that recalled the history, customs and rituals of this people.
For almost three centuries, the history of the Dahomean dynasty has been passed on by different characters, from the guardians of the cult and warlords to the heralds who declaimed the swords of kings.
Bas-reliefs can be interpreted on the one hand as symbols and allegories and on the other hand as an illustrated story. Their dominant theme is the glory of royalty, or more prosaically, the strength and centralization of royal power.

Text: Fransceca Piqué and Leslie H. Rainer with the collaboration of Jérôme C. Alladaye, Rachida de Souza-Ayari and Suzanne Preston Blier

Miniatures Dogon
Tribal art > African art books > Miniatures Dogon

Rock rifts, pebbles, stones raised, sacred or made sacred by the Dogon.A story always repeated. Objects stick to the support, tree, iron, stone, a tree branch becomes a fetish.
The miniaturization of everyday objects gives them a complex mission combining the sacred, the therapeutic and the religious. Unrecognized by the classical canons of art, these forgotten objects are ousted.
The authors of this book propose a poetic evocation between anthropology and art.
