Spoons in African art: for the princes of the Renaissance
African sculptors have deployed their talents and imagination in objects as common and seemingly as modest as spoons, creating a whole universe of surprising shapes. The reader will easily appreciate how illusory the boundary between minor and major arts is.
Some spoons considered from a design point of view are distinguished by the purity of their conception. Others attract attention by the originality and refinement of their decoration. Still others, the most extraordinary ones achieve a perfect fusion of design and decoration, functionality and freedom of invention. Spoons are among the first objects from Black Africa to reach Europe.
