The exhibition, Hair in African Art and Culture, and this book serve to introduce a mode of African art too little and too infrequently recognized or appreciated. Field photographs and sculptures sample the rich variety of hair arrangements that exist or have existed in traditional African life and art. Despite the many references to the abstract character of African masks and figures it is clear that two areas of the real world were accurately, indeed realistically, depited: scarification and coiffures.
