Description
Horses are very rare in Africa; the few to be found west of Sudan, from the Sahara and Sahel down to the fringes of the tropical forests, would have belonged to a king or other notable person. And yet rider and mount sculptures are common among the Dogon, Djenne, Bamana, Senufo, and the Yoruba people. The Akan-Asante people of Ghana and the Kotoko of Chad produced a good deal of small casting brass and bronze sculptures, even though some of the artists may only have ever caught a glimpse of a horse. This visually stunning book presents a wealth of African art depicting the horse and its rider in more than 300 pieces of art—many seen in page-filling color photos—from Epa masks and Yoruba divination cups to Dogon sculptures and Senufo carvings. The Bamana, Boso, and Somono ethnic groups of Mali still celebrate the puppet masquerade, and the final chapter of this book is dedicated to the art and cult of these thriving festivals.

"Chemeche (artist, author, and curator) offers the first catalogue devoted to the subject in African art. This volume is outsized and lavishly illustrated, befitting the art objects and the prestigious collectors and institutions represented … [it] brings together exemplary scholars in the discipline."—Choice
