New Auction Window: Africa Modern

Whether you nab one or a few, these African masks are sure to start a conversation.  Representing countries from central Africa and the Congo to the Cote d'Ivoire, each one has a story to tell.

Just check out this Dogon granary door and the Baule medicine dog (below, center):

Pair the earthy textures with the clean lines of a slatted bench, a polished wooden bowl, or hand loomed rug (all up for auction).
Now ask yourself, what can a fetish do for you?

Bidding ends Tuesday, February 1 at 8pm.  Bids may be placed in person or by phone (212 871-0777) on the auction clipboard near the register.

Happy Bidding!
