Présentation de l'éditeur
 
 
Il “Catalogo degli Ibeji” portava alla identificazione del luogo di origine di ogni Ibeji sulla base di alcuni particolari scultorei incisi sulla statuetta.
L’”Enciclopedia degli Ibeji” porta invece alla identificazione del luogo di origine ritrovando, tra le oltre 500 foto di Ibeji proposte, la foto dell’Ibeji simile al vostro. 
Fausto Polo ritiene che i validi scultori di Ibeji sono stati alcune centinaia, e li quantifica in un numero compreso tra i trecento ed i quattrocento. 
E gli scultori di Ibeji, come del resto la maggior parte degli scultori tribali, si sono sostanzialmente ripetuti nel tempo, facendo e rifacendo quasi sempre lo stesso modello.
Quindi è essenziale disporre di un libro che riporti le fotografie di Ibeji scolpiti dalla maggior parte degli scultori Yoruba, che hanno operato in un arco di tempo compreso tra il 1830 e

Descrizione mostra di Firenze - Palazzo Strozzi
 
 
 
La mostra presenta 50 capolavori di arte africana provenienti dai più antichi regni dell'Africa, conservati senza esporli, nei musei Nigeriani.
 
Nell'esposizione si propone un'Africa "classica", alternativa all'Africa "primitiva" a cui si fece riferimento nel 900 nell'arte e nella cultura.
 
Nel 1958 William Fagg, lo scopritore e massimo studioso dei bronzi dell'antica Ife scriveva mettendo direttamente a confronto l'arte classica greca con quella africana: 
"I dubbi che sorgono di tanto in tanto sull'origine autoctona dello stile di Ife riposano sull'opinione che un'approssimazione tanto forte alla misura classica greca non avrebbe potuto nascere nell'Africa occidentale tranne che come risultato di una concezione dell'arte sviluppatasi per secoli e attraverso stadi paragonabili a quella greca.

Note Libraio: 
Horses are very rare in Africa. The few to be found west of Sudan, from the lands of the Sahara and Sahel down to the fringes of the tropical forests, belong to the king, the chief warrior and to notable persons. Due to the dense humidity of the tropical rainforest and the deadly tsetse fly, only restricted numbers of horses survive. 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. Some of the artists could barely even have caught a glimpse of a horse. This visually stunning book presents a wealth of African art depicting the horse and its rider in a variety of guises, from Epa masks and Yoruba divination cups to Dogon sculptures and Senufo carvings. In Mali, the Bamana, Boso and Somono ethnic groups still celebrate the festivals of the puppet masquerade. The final chapter of this book is dedicated to the art and cult of these festivals, which are still alive and well. It is not the habit of the African artist to provide intellectual statements for his work, yet his unique creative dynamic and far-searching vision does not conflict with that of

Quatrième de couverture
Dans le cadre de leurs études menées sur l'art Yoruba, nombre de chercheurs ont souligné l'importance accordée à la représentation de la gémellité ire ibeji. La diversité des statuettes exécutées dans les limites relativement étroites de cette forme d'art est tout simplement extraordinaire. A travers les milliers de figures ibeji découvertes dans le pays Yoruba, se dessinent les nombreuses personnalités qui ont choisi de traiter ce même sujet. 
Dans l'histoire de la sculpture figurative africaine, les artistes Yoruba se distinguent par leur production importante et par la grande variété des objets utilisés à des fins domestiques et rituelles: portes et piliers de véranda, représentations des nombreuses divinités (prisa) du panthéon Yoruba, masques de danse de la fête d'Egungun, ou des rites Gelede et Epa. Lorsque des jumeaux meurent et que les parents souhaitent hongrer leur mémoire, les sculpteurs créent des figurines en bois

‘African Vision: The Walt Disney-Tishman African Art Collection’
 
This female figure, made of ivory and standing 37 inches tall, was made in the early Nineteenth Century by Edo peoples in the Benin kingdom court style, and was probably intended for an altar to a queen mother. It is one of the first two objects purchased by Paul and Ruth Tishman in 1959. "Ivory can be almost universally interpreted as a symbol of importance and wealth,” says exhibition curator Bryna Freyer.
WASHINGTON D.C.:Most Americans know little about the vast and diverse continent of Africa, much less the arts created there. Dark and primitive, the arts of the African peoples reflect the rituals of life, stripped to the most basic interpretive forms both conceptually and artistically.
Celebrating the arts of Africa and the profound role that they have played in molding Twentieth Century Abstraction and Modernist art in the "West" is the Smithsonian's newest exhibition, "African Vision: The Walt Disney-Tishman African Art Collection." It is on view through September 7, 2008, at The Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African Art (NMAA).
 
"African Vision" showcases 88 outstanding artworks, part of a larger collection donated to the NMAA, that represents the largest gift of sculpture in the museum's history.
 
In 1959, Paul and Ruth Tishman began their collection with the purchase of two pieces of art from the Benin kingdom — an early Nineteenth Century ivory female figure standing 37 inches tall, made in the court style by the Edo peoples, and a 28-inch-tall, Eighteenth Century copper alloy mask that was worn by a divine-healer in masquerade

The Yoruba


The term Yoruba describes both a language and a tribe living between Nigeria and the Republic of Benin, in an area covered by forests and savannah. Their history can be traced from the beginning of our millennium, with the civilization of Ife. Following the collapse of the kingdom of Ife kingdom of a number such as Oyo and Ijebu emerged, they in turn disintegrated during the 18th and 19th, but were revived by the colonial powers, to the end of the 19th. Today they are still the basis of the Yoruba political structure. The slave trade touched heavily Yoruba people of Nigeria and he contributed to their diaspora and the release of their rites and beliefs.


The Yoruba are prolific craftsmen, most Yoruba art objects dating from between the late 19 th and the middle of this century, and can sometimes be attributed to known artists by their names, which is an exception in African art.


During the XVI, the Ijebu kingdom, ruled areas near the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. copper imported by sailors, was traded by the Portuguese Ijebu and many bronze objects were created by their artists. These objects reflect the influence of their neighbors, the Kingdom of Benin. Nevertheless, their bells and bracelets scepters are usually decorated with figures, half human, half animal with eyes bulging and curved scars on his forehead.

The empire of Oyo between the XVII and XIX was located in the northern territories or peoples
