Inside the members area of the African Art Club, see the following videos:
-Exposition de la galerie Didier Claes, “Art premiers d’Afrique noire”, Brafa 2013
- La Galerie Jacques Germain expose à BRAFA 2013 de Bruxelles, speaks about two old Bakotas
-Serge Schoffel Bete masks
The seventeen Bete masks presented at BRAFA belong to a corpus of still little known traditional African arts. These astonishing works express impressive power with concision and inventiveness. Their lines are harmonious and the architectural composition of their volumes gives these fantastic faces a strong three dimensional structure. This is a unique form in African art. In their original context, the masks were intended to inspire fear and respect. By their presence, these incarnations of super-human beings remind of the profound mysteries of nature and existence. The impression their creators sought to make still remains.

For those of you who paid me 100 € with a credit card last year for the African Art Club subscription, it is time to renew your subscription, it would be easier for me if you use the paypal system ( that also accept credit card payments)
If you enjoy my updates and are on a monthly payment, why not switch to the yearly payment, it is much cheaper. You should do it before I raise my prices once again.
