In most cases African Crafts has been known as of painting of decorated surfaces like rock faces, mud huts, hides, bark, pottery, sculptures and human bodies.
Africa has always had a vibrant functional and utilitarian craft along with textiles, fetishes, idols and cultural artifacts for decades. Within our communities we have valued everything that African craft represents which is not just visual; own symbolism and spiritual dimensions alongside our own decorative and aesthetic qualities. Master craftsmen and women still exist and have a special status within our societies and we respect them as the members of our communities. Expertise and traditional skills we do revered and coveted.
Unfortunately, artist's names are often not known, not recorded when the objects of their creativity are initially collected, preserved or sold. We are here at Nanababa just to expose them to the World.
