CHOKWE, DRUMS, Angola

Drums are among the most important art forms in Africa, used both as a musical instrument and as a work of sculpture significant in many ceremonial functions, including dance, rituals, story-telling and communication of messages.

Two Chokwe drums, with their intricate abstract designs and faces, are double-headed and show the creativity and power they put into functional objects.
