If this is your first time to my website, or if you have never read it... before you explore my website I would like to ask you to read
My statement on my site, my collection and my collecting philosophy

With my recent move back to Denver from Boston I have put a lot of things on hold, including my website. I haven't made any changes to it for a long time
and hope to have the chance to sit down and make a lot of changes and additions soon...
Custom display stands and mounts from "Display Africa"

Displaying things in your home can be a challenge, especially for odd pieces like a Katanga cross or an ivory bangle or that odd mask that won't hang on
the wall right. I have a GREAT stand/mount maker that I highly recommend.

The African Art and Culture discussion group

An online interactive forum on African art

If you have a piece in your collection that you are unsure of and would like advice about, I would like to invite you join a worldwide discussion group on
African art and culture and post the image of your piece and ask your question there. By posting your question to the group you have a wide range of
people with varied levels of experience to help you out! You can join and participate in the group, or, join and just sit back and read the emails on various
topics.
