African Art



The Mead’s collection of African art includes more than 300 objects made in the twentieth century by the Yoruba, Luba, Kuba and other peoples, including carved rubbing implements and beaded accessories used by diviners; more than forty small, carved figures (ibeji) of Yoruba effigy pairs of deceased twins; and nearly 100 textiles featuring woven raffia skirts of the Kuba and indigo-dyed cotton (adire) cloth and performance garments of the Yoruba peoples.
