Design is a word of modern world ? Wrong! Design is an experience of culture since humans were able to make a drawing on a stone wall. Picasso invented modern art and design? Wrong again. Have a look yourself.
Indeed african tribal art has been very typical for modern design: Very clear expression, simply but strong signs, simply concentration ont he most important items of a face or an object. The african tribes didnÂ´t do that for purpose of art, it was part of their religion. They were wearing african masks during their religious procedures. If you want to learn more about this fascinating peaces of art, pay a visit to a nice collection of african tribal art, which also has a large gallery of african masks and african figures.
