Friday Photos: Art and Death in Africa

Last week, I led a training session for our docents related to the theme of “Art and Death in Africa.”  In honor of this training session, and because Sunday is Halloween, I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces from the African collection that relate to the theme of death.  Some of these artworks represent ancestors, others were used at funerals, and one is a guardian figure for a reliquary.  To learn more about these works, visit the African collections online

Come back to the DMA Educator Blog on Tuesday when I’ll share information on additional projects that I have been working on related to African art.
