Sotheby's African, Oceanic & Pre-Columbian Art Auction, scheduled for May 16, 2008 at the New York Gallery is just five days away.
For a summary of the auction and an interpretation of it's significance in the world of Tribal Art, visit this article in News-Antiques.com.
Baga serpents, one of which is featured in the auction and the article, with an estimate of 1.5 to 2 million dollars, are some of the continent's most striking sculptural objects.
We will miss the auction in person but will be monitoring it from afar and will report on the most interesting sales.
Thank you for your attention, William Ernest Waites, TribalWorks
