Description

Review 1:
Hardcover, Illustrated Boards, No DJ, 11" x 8.5", 228 Pages, 1 Political Map, 1 Ethnic Group Map, 1 sketched map. 101 Full-Page Color Object Photos, Bibliography. Author : Jan Strybol. Photos by : Dominique Provost. Published by Peeters, Louvain, 2013.

This is a wonderfully unpretentious monograph on the art of Northern Nigeria, with the text and descriptions refreshingly honest about the ambiguities of age and provenance associated with most tribal art. Examples : "Information on the ethnic origins of this sculpture is scarce and indecisive" and "This couple is thought to originate in Borno State and it is suggested they are Daveko (or Davoko). We know nothing of any ethnic group of this name." and "This female bronze figure is 360 years old (with a margin of error of about 35%)" and "This couple of figures was said to be Bachama Bako. We think this actually means Mbako." In the book's introduction, it is stated that the art of Northern Nigeria, particularly in the Islamic regions, is not as plentiful or well-studied as the art from the south of the county : the art works presented in this book are said to come from private collections and dealers

I don't recognize any of the simply wonderful objects depicted from other publications, and I it is likely that many of these items are previously unpublished. Many of the items are photographed in pairs, although they are not intrinsically paired objects artistically, but rather are very similar items, often from the same carver. Nevertheless, the pairing is strikingly effective in all instances, and the objects are of a pleasingly consistent quality. the items are nearly all figures, with just a few masks, plaques, and other objects. Most of the figures are wood, but there are some bronze items and one carved stone.

The presentation is very good, with a typical format of (excellent) full-page photos facing the really interesting descriptions. The quality of the paper, binding and cover is a little more questionable, but not enough to stop this being one of my top twenty tribal art books. (out of 600+). Even though it was published in 2013, in the Spring of 2014 it is already getting hard to find. My advice : buy soon.
