GOODWILL ART GUIDE — World Art

AFRICAN ARTEFACTS
The artefacts seen in this set come from West, Central and Southern Africa and are listed under their present-day countries of origin, starting in the north-west and working south.



Unlike other societies which have bequeathed us so much in the way of monuments and material culture as evidence of their civilisations, Africans scarcely ever made anything to last. There are exceptions to this, notably the Great Zimbabwe ruins which are the most spectacular remains of human construction in black Africa. However, there are many African peoples who produce only the most ephemeral works.
In the vast rural areas of the continent the number of agricultural and household objects varies from the extreme lack of possessions of a nomadic people like the Bororo, who barely own a sleeping-mat, to the profusion of objects and implements found in the palaces of the Sudan and the civilisations of the West Coast lagoons, and their modern cities like Lagos and Abidjan.
