About us

This website presents a variety of objects that belong the world of Primitive Art. They originated from Africa and were purchased over the last 25 years. Most of the displayed objects were purchased in Brussels, which is the true capital of African Art as most of the traders move into Europe from here. Many objects were acquired out of existing collections in Central Europe, Scandinavia, USA and South Africa. Although the provenance of an object always brings important information on its age, a considerable number of them still directly came from the village. This means that still outside the Westernized cities there are still remaining beliefs in the power of these objects that have been secretly kept outside of the view of potential traders. Over the last 20 years there have continuously been appearing objects of tribal art, sometimes in small flocks, indicating that these items have still been kept by the last survivors of the colonial period.
