The first monograph devoted to this remarkable art. The text discusses the use and meaning of these works, their employment in religious ritual, and their connections with the dominant secret society of the Senufo people. The many illustrations drawn from museums and collections in Europe and America reveal the high quality of this art, its different regional styles, and the distinction and individuality achieved by its artists within the limits of a strong guiding tradition. -- book jacket.
