About Catawiki's ethnographic / tribal art auction

Art has formed an integral part of the cultural identity of people groups and tribes around the world for thousands of years. Whether it is art associated with religion; paintings reflecting a specific natural environment, or art created purely for enjoyment - people groups continue to use the materials local to their home or from the landscape around them, to create intricate and progressive works of art. Containing works from Decorative and Exclusive categories, Catawiki’s Ethnographic and Tribal Art auctions include a diverse range of lots, including wooden masks; ceremonial weapons; figurines; jewellery and musical instruments.
