I visited Kongo Exhibit at the Princeton Art Musuem this week. I discovered so much! My favorite objects were a glass bottle and a walking cane – both transformed by ritual specialists into powerful Nkisi. Additionally, the curators of the show explained symbolism of poses and clothing of Kongo sculpture. The show traces elements of Kongo art from Africa to the US. These elements include ceramics, walking staffs, burial grounds and musical and dance traditions.
