Welcome to African Variety - Your gallery of African tribal masks.
Our small but diversified collection has been assembled over twenty years.
Our african masks are the works of skilled craftsmen, created according to the requirements of tribal rules and customs,
usually in the primitive conditions of a remote village. They have been used in actual ceremonies, tribal initiations and rituals,
always accompanied by dance and very often with music played on traditional instruments.
Each mask is designed to perform a specific function but, from the art collector's point of view, the visual beauty is equally appreciated.
We would like to share our understanding of African art and hope that the ancient beliefs and rituals will fascinate you even more now,
when another "piece" of African spirit will occupy that special place in your home.
