Wild spirits, strong medicine : African art and the wilderness by Martha G Anderson( Book )

8 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wild Spirits, Strong Medicine: African Art and the Wilderness explores African concepts of the nature/culture, wilderness/village dichotomy as it is expressed through works of art. The opposition between nature and culture, one of the fundamental organizing principles of African cosmologies, is an old topic in anthropological discourse. It has, however, never been closely examined in African art. African ideas about the qualities of the wilderness and the village give us insights into African concepts of civilization. These ideas are explored through a sifting of past research and current studies on the subject, and the inclusion of related works of art"--Jacket

African cosmos : stellar arts by Christine Mullen Kreamer( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A groundbreaking scholarly publication, accompanying an exhibition organized by the National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution, African Cosmos: Stellar Arts brings together exceptional works of art, dating from ancient times to the present, and essays by leading scholars and contemporary artists to consider African cultural astronomy: creativity and artistic practice in Africa as it is linked to celestial bodies and atmospheric phenomena. African concepts of the universe are intensely personal, placing human beings in relation to the earth and sky, and with the sun, moon, and stars. At the core of creation myths and the foundation of moral values, celestial bodies are often accorded sacred capacities and are part of the "cosmological map" that allows humans to chart their course through life."--Publisher's website
