Schatten uit het Afrika Museum - TERVUREN

Current Zaire was once the personal property of the Belgian king. He later transferred it to the Belgian State. This vast area, covered with rainforests, rich in minerals and resources, also has an extremely ancient and rich tradition of kingdoms and great cultures, from which has emerged an art that is unparalleled in the world. It is no wonder that most and perhaps the most beautiful of these works of art ended up in the Royal Museum for Central Africa in Tervueren, aside from Brussels. For years this museum has been an inaccessible stronghold. Now it comes out with its treasures, in an exhibition where this book is the catalog. Countless beautiful color photographs of the masterpieces, with an extremely expert and legible explanation, make this book a standard work of art from Central Africa. (Biblion review, H.M. Leyten.)
