The most colourful continent of all, Africa, is home to the greatest diversity in, and the oldest, cultures. Although Europeans did great harm to the people, resilience made Africans persist and flourish, which can be seen in the vast diversity in sculpture, traditional dress and architecture that Africa has given the world. From the Islamic north and east, to the dense rainforest in the centre and savannah's in the south: Africa is truly a continent of which the grandeur is beyond comparison.

We present you rare artefacts from Africa, but also interpretations of its beautiful people and nature in fine art.
