Traditional African Artworks

[ From: Eric Jin | Published: 2007-11-07 Views: 1380 | Booked times: 55 ]

You cannot find a better place to buy African artworks in Beijing than at the Anlian Africa on WangFuJing Street, Anlian is a wonderful place for lovers of contemporary African fine art and craft works. To this end, they cater to a particular niche audience with keen interests in the acquisition of African artwork. Anlian focuses on African paintings, wood carvings and raffia works direct from African artists, artisans and craftspeople.

The owner told me that some of the best sellers are the traditional African masks, used in ancient times and today. The people use them in initiation rites during religious or funeral celebrations, or during theatrical or comic performances.

The prices tend to differ greatly. You can buy a carved scoop for RMB 30, but a intricate wood carving would cost you up to RMB 30,000. The shop assistant speaks basic English and will try her best to tell you the meaning embodied in the artworks.
