A continent of vast deserts, dense jungles, and open plains, Africa is truly a place of contrasts. This stunning collection of photographs brings the customs, beliefs, and arts of its traditional peoples vividly to life. Although archaeology has revealed how people lived in the great African civilizations of the past, some African cultures have changed little over time. Many unique craft skills have been handed down, providing us with a rich heritage of statutes and carvings in wood, bronze, gold, and copper. Discover how the bronze head of a Benin queen was cast using the lost wax process, how African clothes are made, how a farmer's house in Botswana is built, as well as the religious and many other aspects of African life.
