More than 2000 objects from Africa, Oceania, Asia and North and South America offer great diversity in terms of function, form, origin and budget. For example, jewels made from wild boar tusks, which give the wearer strength to defeat the enemy. Combs from Sumba that indicate the marital status of the wearer. Ashanti dolls from Ghana, which are carried if a woman is struggling to conceive. Or a churning rod-holder from Nepal through which the woodcarver expresses their life vision.
The collection varies from objects collectors would kill for to beautifully designed items that wouldn’t be out of place in a designer house. Visitors to the Tribal Art Fair can expect to be amazed by numerous intriguing objects, which the exhibitors will be more than happy to tell you all about.
Once again, the fair will be held in the church building De Duif on Prinsengracht. This atmospheric location certainly contributes to the open and friendly atmosphere for which the fair is renowned.
