Atlanta Antique Gallery - Tribal Art: Carvings & Masks

Cultural - Regional - Tribal Art:  Carvings & Masks
Tribal artists tend to favor three-dimensional artworks over two-dimensional works, as reflected in their prolific carvings which tend to favor visual abstraction over naturalistic representation, and carry a multiplicity of meaning. For many centuries tribal masks have played a major role in rituals, celebrations, ceremonial and tribal initiations, with some masks being used to ward off evil spirits and some to celebrate events.
