When is an object finished? The creation of the invisible among the Bamana of Mali

Descriptive

Abstract (type = Abstract)
My aim is to investigate the way in which two interrelated African societies, the Bamana and Malinke of Mali, West Africa, viewed the production of art. It will explore Bamana and Malinke ideas about when an art object is 'finished' and why the ending of an object's 'life' is so fraught with danger for its user.
