The exhibition was described on the Smithsonian website in these words: "On view are 153 objects, including figural sculptures, thrones, stools, elephant masks, bowls, baskets, calabashes (gourds), drinking horns, textiles, and more. Many objects are on loan from museums and collectors in the U.S., Europe, and Africa.
