African Art
Around one billion people are living on the African continent, speaking over 2,000 different languages and dialects. The forms of artistic expression in "African art" or "Art from Africa" are correspondingly diverse.

As part of our series of images to mark Black History Month, we take a closer look at objects of African art.
