Interesting posting site for Tribal Arts news, shows, etc.
African Arts is a quarterly journal devoted to
the plastic and graphic arts of Africa, broadly
defined to encompass sculpture in wood, metal,
ceramic, ivory, and stone, and less familiar
work in fiber, hide, mud, and other materials.
Included in this mandate are architecture, arts
of personal adornment, contemporary fine and
popular arts, and the arts of the Africa
diaspora. In addition, the journal encourages
dialogue on other forms of African expressive
culture: film, theater, dance, and music.

Kofi Cole Art
"Kofi Cole is the nom de couteau (knife name) of an American historian of African art,  
Herbert M. Cole. Cole has recently transformed 40 years of studying the arts of  Africa
into a gallery of more than 100 miniature masks and figures. These small wood
carvings are remarkably true to their traditional African models. Each sculpture is
original, painstakingly carved and painted with fine detailing, and, although on average
only three inches long or tall, captures the essence of its prototype."

I recently met Herbert (Kofi) Cole and he is a very nice person and I really enjoyed
seeing his miniature pieces up close, they were great!
Enjoy your tour through Kofi Cole’s Gallery!

Bob's sculptures have many influences, but of course the one influence that
interested me the most are his sculptures with an African influence, especially
the Kongo nkisi influence.

Check out his
sculptures page, especially "The Spirits" and their description,
and I think you will be amazed on how wonderful they all are.
I purchased a piece from him this year called "The Collector".
