The Art of Benin


This well-illustrated study celebrates the rich culture of the ancient African kingdom of Benin. Ben-Amos examines its tradition of cast bronze and ivory carving, particularly of human and animal figures, and explores the role of art in every level of society both before and after European contact in the 16th century.
