Origin: Mozambique

Notes: The Makonde artworks are in a class of their own. Mainly executed in Ebony wood, one of the hardest woods, the Makonde artists have a style that is unique to them. The family tree, also known as the "Tree of Life", is an art that depicts the family, with each member engaged in a different activity, but at the same time interconnected to the other. Some pieces take a few weeks, others several years to complete. The inspiration to work on each piece can come through a "dream" or "vision" as some Artists acknowledge. An ebony Family tree is the kind artwork that lovers of African Art or Serious Collectors should always consider as part of their collection. A full profile is available with each piece sold.
