"Art of Cameroon" study photographs
Photographs from various museums assembled by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) for use in the traveling exhibition entitled, "Art of Cameroon" (on display at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History from February 1, 1984-June 17, 1984). 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. "A crossroads for the migrations of many peoples, the diversity of Cameroon's population is reflected in the great variety and richness of art forms. Objects from the steppes and the forest are shown, but the primary focus of the exhibition is the art of the West African kingdoms of the Cameroon grassfields."
