Traditional African Art

The Talisman winds down the year with an exhibition of traditional African art including wooden masks from Ivory Coast and Congo, a beaded skirt and a purse from West Africa, a wedding trompet from South Sudan and other affordable artefacts including a coconut grinder from Tanzania and a smoking pipe from the Congo. The buffalo skin shield over the fireplace has been attracting a lot of attention and many of the masks already bear a red sticker, having sold to clients who are buying Christmas presents for friends and loved ones.
