Although considered the cradle of mankind, the most recent history of the African continent has long been shrouded in mystery. Without leaving any written records, many civilizations rose and disappeared again, only leaving majestic works of art as witnesses of their greatness. Most of these forgotten cultures were only rediscovered throughout the 20th century, often by accident, and scholarship has been struggling to put the puzzle pieces of the last millennia of the African continent back together.
"Wherever our art goes, whatever it decides to do it can look back into creative Africa and find corroboration, for the African past is always one step ahead of the European present." - Tom Phillips
