The carver should speak directly to us. Rarely auction houses or galleries can name the actual carver of an African object. No wonder that the extraordinary prices are artificially and not artisticly based.
This is the first online database that is structured by the names of the Senufo carvers. You will have an insight of the artistic characteristics and it might help you to determine the origin of your objects. Learan more about certain specific objects of the Senufo tribe in the blog, such as Kpelié masks, Tugubele statues or other carved objects of daily use.
The African sculpture still provides inspiration for contemporary art and design. In our blog, we bring this aesthetication together and do present, that African art is not just a decoration or object of speculation.
