Description

A guide to the exhibition of West African artefacts, tribal jewellery, contemporary Tasmanian painters from Sidewalk Gallery, and Dick Bett Gallery, Hobart.
May 13th until 24th, 1997.
"The decision to bring this exhibition to Melbourne follows multiple requests from Victorians visiting Hobart The Sidewalk Gallery collection of Artefacts from Africa and Tribal Jewellery is probably the largest in Australia.

Individually selected from an enormous geographical area and many different cultures the collection includes rare collectors' pieces through to more recent traditional crafts. Some artefacts were collected from villages where they are still used as every day items as protective and ceremonial figures, while others were found in the ground, where villagers were digging and hoeing their crops, and may be hundreds of years old." - page 3
