Arts,History of Africa

OLD AND ANTIQUE

9 Apr , 2015  

In the western world, the concept of “old” implies certain values that turn antiques into exclusive artistic treasures. In Africa, however, this concept does not necessarily imply the same values; therefore when an antique is bought in Africa, in reality is an old and sometimes shabby item. This is the reason why The African Touch brings to this art gallery many beautiful and high quality traditional African pieces of art which are valued regarding its aesthetics, symbolism, meaning and history; not regarding its age.
