Publisher's summary: Horses are very rare in Africa, and yet rider and mount sculptures are common among the Dogon, Djenne, Bamana, Senufo and the Yoruba people.The Akan-Asante people of Ghana and the Kotoko of Chad produced a good deal of small casting brass and bronze sculptures. Some of the artists could barely even have caught a glimpse of a horse. This visually stunning book presents a wealth of African art depicting the horse and its rider in a variety of guises, from Epa masks and Yoruba divination cups to Dogon sculptures and Senufo carvings.
