Description
Painted Calebas - Organic - Tikar - Cameroun
Vintage - used with visible signs of wear

This item stems from the collection of Klaus Paysan (1930-2011), who was a German photographer and author. Paysan first visited the African continent in 1961. With a never ending interest and a deep passion he researched and collected tribal art on more than 100 trips. He always approached people with deep respect for the local customs and taboos. This respect was the basis for close friendships and several honorary titles in African families and secret societies. This closeness opened doors to an Africa that remains hidden to foreigners.

More information about mr. Paysan can be found here: http://klaus-paysan.blogspot.com/

All items come directly from Klaus Paysan's collection and are sold as such. Some items show traces of age and use, as is to be expected. We do our best to photograph any blemishes, but it is always possible that we overlooked something. The descriptions of the items are based on mr. Paysan's database.

This item will be packed with the utmost care and shipped with DHL Express. If you buy multiple items, we will refund any surplus shipping costs. Please contact us after payment to arrange this.
