SENUFO, DRUMS, Ivory Coast

Drums are among the most important art forms in Africa, used both as a musical instrument and as a work of sculpture significant in many ceremonial functions, including dance, rituals, story-telling and communication of messages.

Four tall Senufo drums, embellished with low relief animals, exhibit a subtle surface elegance and well designed form, contrast with the simpler fetish drum.
