Visions of Humanity in The Exceptional Sale - Christie's

Christie's will present a special selection entitled Visions of Humanity as part of The Exceptional Sale on July 9 in London. While the larger sale focuses on decorative arts and furniture, Visions of Humanity comprises a range of tribal African and classical European works.  Highlights of the special selections, pictured below, include a magnificent Luba bowstand attributed to the Warua Master and a  beautiful Chokwe warrior figure.
