HORSE and RIDER Exhibition
APRIL 2 - MAY 31, 1997

"HORSE AND RIDER", presents a wide range of traditional sculpture of a very prestigious theme in African art. Only the greatest leaders were depicted on horseback. Owning a horse was a luxury, only for the rich and.powerful or those of high rank. Being shown on horseback was a great honor and so was ownership of a sculpture of a horseman, celebrating aesthetic expression and indicating wealth and status.
