African wooden plank masks, as wall art, is an ideal home decorating idea, in either a contemporary or traditional home or office. Furthermore, African masks are also the single most influential piece of African Art as well as, the most recognized as such, all over the world.  The masks we are featuring today are all hand carved from wood by Africa's indigenous people. Also the mask invariably goes hand-in-hand with the apropos attire that are worn in these Celebrations.  As a result these African tribal masks are either celebratory in nature: giving thanks for the great harvest.  Spiritual: by initiating transformation or calling on the spirit for guidance or to thank them. And last but not least,  religious in nature.

COVER PAGE:

The wooden masks featured on this post cover page are from - Kenya’s Giryama people that hand carve these flat wooden post, to serve as tombstones called Kikangu.  Furthermore, the grave markers have several functions; representing the Giryama’s way of life as well as, the ancestor’s spirits are honored by erecting these post.  As a result, these markers also serves as conduit between the ancestral realm and the land of the living.

The abstract and geometric forms and carved patterns of Kikangu serve as a roadmap representation of the spirit. The gravestone marker is also a tribute and blueprint of the deceased time on earth.

In post - Renaissance Europe, Kuba Cloth, the embroidered and appliqué decorated raffia cloth from the Congo (formerly Zaire), entered the curio cabinets and treasuries of kings as well as, nobles the finest representation of African art. More recently, the mastery of Kuba cloths' abstract patterning was a source of inspiration to artists such as Matisse, who displayed part of his large collection on the wall of his studio.

This textile is tightly woven using strands from raffia palm leaves. Kuba cloth comes in two styles. One has a flat weave with little or no pile while the other has a velvety rich pile.   Vegetable dyes are used as colour on the raffia threads and then embroidered onto finished cloth to create patterns such as circles, rectangles, creative curvatures, and lines. Kuba cloth is used for ceremonial skirts, wall hangings, or mats for sitting and sleeping on.

When I lived abroad being homesick meant I longed for Africa bush, after all, it is Africa's soul. Furthermore interior of safari lodges like Molori is what ultimately led me to launch Phases Africa Furniture & Decor in Los Angeles almost 20 years ago.
"If I know a song of Africa, of the giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back, of the plows in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers, does Africa know a song of me? Will the air over the plain quiver with a color that I have had on, or the children invent a game in which my name is, or the full moon throw a shadow over the gravel of the drive that was like me, or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?"
 From OUT OF AFRICA by Isak Dinesen (1885-1962)

More recently, the mastery of Kuba cloths’ abstract patterning was a source of inspiration to artists such as Matisse, who displayed part of his large collection on the wall of his studio.

An interior decor idea from Africa:  Turn these old African grain pots upside down and paint them, as seen below, they make ideal occasional or side-tables indoor or outdoors.  The old pots left as is - can be used as pot planters also inside or outside.

Wabi-Sabi the latest trend in Interior Design, is a very familiar concept in Africa art.  The Description on Wikipedia  - “In traditional Japanese aesthetic, wabi-sabi () is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete"

In Africa we are quite au fait with the concept of Wabi-Sabi for the reason that traditional tribal handmade art in Africa are purely based on this very concept. Due to products such as chiselled, hand-carved, and handmade African Art, Furniture as well as, Africa Decor, will indeed mirror the beauty, talent as well as the imperfections of humans.

The African wooden bed featured on our main page, of this post, was hand carved by the Senufo people, residing in West Africa, each bed is uniquely different (see more examples below.)  These beds were predominantly used during siesta time, and not for sleeping on during the night.  A great percentage of these beds as well as, all the stools were carved out a single piece of wood.  These beds can either be used as a sculptural element in any room or as a coffee table in a home or office.

 “Few SA artists can productively be called raconteurs, as in a skilful teller of anecdotes. Most are simply too glum – solemn, too – when spinning yarns around their work. If only more artists, in particular photographers, could be like Obie Oberholzer.”

“I love to travel and look – to look at people and places and things. To journey somewhere, to watch big things get smaller, mingle, change hue and disappear. To look so far that it hurts . . . and smell Africa.  There’s freedom in not knowing quite where you’re going – I mean, what’s another 100 kilometers if you’re making your way towards Swartwitpensbokfonteinberg?”

Diesel And Dust (2011)

Visually stimulating images of Africa offer a multifaceted view of the continent in this recollection that is at once a history, a meditation, a travel memoir, and a tribute.“Diesel and Dust is a philosophy. The smell of diesel and dust early in the morning give me a feeling that I’m far away, and this book is about that – interesting people and places; about wonderings and passing’s through.
Round The Bend  (2006)
Obie Oberholzer is acknowledged as one of South Africa’s best-loved photographers. A modern troubadour with a camera, his latest book titled Round the Bend: Travels Around Southern Africa tells his stories of journeys through Southern Africa in the last two years. This is Obie Oberholzer’s seventh book and it has been hailed as his magnum opus.
Round the Bend is a splendidly produced travelogue of 190 colour photos in 176 pages, mostly accompanied by zany stories of a number of journeys through South Africa, Lesotho, Botswana, Namibia, Tanzania, Zambia, Swaziland and Mozambique.

Beyond Bagamo 1998
Obie Oberholzer began this, his fourth major photographic odyssey, in Cape Town, on the 1st of April 1994. He meandered his way north, across plateaus and plains, through valleys and over mountains up along Africa’s eastern side. There were jungles to come and vast deserts and roads that were no longer roads. He traveled the byways through South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Eritria and Sudan to Egypt (via Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Israel). In the parking lot near the Great Pyramids of Giza, he wiped the dust from his dashboard. The distance read 40,000 kilometres and the time said 9 months and twenty days. This is his story.

ROBERT SLINGSBY, KNOWN FOR BEING CONSISTENTLY AHEAD OF THE CURVE.....

Robert Slingsby was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1955. He discovered as a small child both his talent for drawing and his affinity for Africa in the form of rock-art and artefacts he left for Holland to study at the Vrije Akademie in Den Haag for five years. He held over twenty one solo exhibitions in Holland during his time there.  Robert is an articulate, colourful and knowledgeable man, whose creative courage has even influenced the style of everything he surrounds himself with. This has made him and his home a sought after subject for books on homes, magazines and television such as CNN Arts club and the French photojournalist Solvi dos Santos. Robert is in collections, both public and private worldwide. These include a variety of collections such as the Deutshe Bank, Department of Foreign Affairs, Investec, SASOL, Pietersburg Art Museum, Bundesbank in Germany, South African Reserve Bank, Pepsico, Witwatersrand University Collection and the personal collection of the famous family of Wyeth artists, amongst many others.
