About this Item: Five Continents Editions, Italy, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This new title in the Visions of Africa series offers a deep insight into the art of the Kota people who live in Gabon in the coastal area of western equatorial Africa. The Kota has developed an astonishing creativity in their representations of their ancestors. Their dreamlike figures combine a sharp sense of stylised reality tending towards abstraction with an extraordinary and imaginative use of copper, tin and iron for purposes of decoration. But what seems to have been just a matter of aesthetic taste has in fact a symbolic function, as most of the decorative motifs and the choice of the technique are linked to the kinship system or religious beliefs. The same applies to the use of copper, which was a rare material and consequently a mark of wealth and power in their society. The mbulu-ngulu reliquary figure was an icon, the visual sign of a world in which the ancestors continued to watch over their descendants. In Kota lands it was an essential tool in group survival, one that enabled a continuous communication to be established between the living and the dead. The reliquary figures and initiation masks of the Kota and Mbete served as aides-memoire and instruments useful in arousing the forces of the netherworld among the Gabonese and Congolese in times past. Together with the Fang byeri and other nkisi punu, in their various forms they have gradually become the time-honoured emblems of the culture and ancestral values of the people of the great African equatorial forest.

About this Item: GOURCUFF GRADENIGO, 2011. Broché FRANÇAIS. Ouvrage Neuf Livre neuf. C'est sans doute à cause de leurs incessantes migrations que la plupart des populations gabonaises, sud camerounaises et nord congolaises conservaient leurs reliques ancestrales dans de petits paniers d'écorce ou d'osier tressé, d'un portage aisé, souvent surmontés d'une représentation anthropomorphe.Les groupes Kota plaçaient au sommet de ces ossuaires une effigie en bois plaquée de cuivre et de laiton. Chez les Obamba l'ensemble était appelé mbulu ngulu (littéralement : panier à figure), et chacun était nommé en particulier ce qui conférait à la sculpture une effective intention de portrait. Chez les Mahongwé le mot bwété désignait à la fois le culte rendu aux ancêtres, leurs reliques et la figure émergeant du reliquaire.Secrètement gardées dans de petites huttes à l'écart du village, ces reliquaires sacrés n'étaient accessibles qu'aux initiés habilités à consulter les ancêtres lors de cérémonies circonstancielles privées ou communautaires.Bernard Dulon a réuni dans cet ouvrage 23 figures de reliquaires Kota, oeuvres d'artistes anonymes, inventeurs d'un art architectural et flamboyant qui séduit et fascine spécialistes, collectionneurs, amateurs ou simples curieux bien au-delà de toutes frontières artistiques.Grande figure de l'ethnologie française, spécialiste des arts africains traditionnels, ancien chef de mission en Afrique sub-saharienne, Louis Perrois a rédigé un texte introductif qui replace ces oeuvres dans leur contexte géographique et culturel, ainsi que les notices de présentation de chacune de ces figures. Il nous invite ainsi à parcourir tout le Gabon oriental et le Congo adjacent pour en évoquer la vie traditionnelle, soumises aux contraintes des croyances ancestrales. 280x228x15mm 810g.

About this Item: Five Continents Editions, 2012. Condition: new. Milano, 2012; paperback, pp. 164, ill. e tavv. b/n e col., cm 17x24,5. Les peuples de l'aire Kota de l'Afrique équatoriale atlantique ont développé dans leurs représentations des ancêtres une créativité onirique alliant un sens aigu de la stylisation du réel tendant à l'abstraction, à un étonnant sens du décor avec une utilisation généralisée du métal - cuivre, laiton, fer. Mais ce qui pour nous, Occidentaux, semble avoir été un 'goût 'd' ordre esthétique, était en fait au coeur des villages Kota une nécessité symbolique, la plupart des motifs décoratifs étant des signes liés au système d'organisation familiale ou aux croyances religieuses. De même pour l'emploi du cuivre qui était une matière rare et en conséquence, une marque de richesse et de puissance sociale. La figure de reliquaire mbulu-ngulu était une icône, le repère visuel d'un monde où les ancêtres continuent à veiller sur leurs descendants. C'était, en pays Kota, un 'outil 'essentiel pour la survie des groupes, permettant une communication récurrente entre les vivants et les morts. Supports de mémoire et instruments de mobilisation des forces occultes des Gabonais et Congolais d'antan, les figures de reliquaire et les masques d'initiation des Kota et Mbete, dans la diversité de leurs formes, sont peu à peu devenus, au côté des byeri fang et autres nkisi punu, les emblèmes immémoriaux de la culture et des valeurs ancestrales des peuples de la grande forêt équatoriale africaine.
