    African Wall Decor│Wooden Plank Masks

      African wooden plank masks as wall decor, is an ideal decorating idea, in either a contemporary, traditional home or office space. Furthermore, African masks are also the single most influential piece of African Art as well as, the most recognized as such, all over the world.  The masks we are featuring today are all hand carved from wood by Africa’s indigenous people. Also the mask invariably goes hand-in-hand with the apropos attire that are worn in these Celebrations.  As a result these African tribal masks are either celebratory in nature: giving thanks for the great harvest.  Spiritual: by initiating transformation or calling on the spirit for guidance or to thank them. And last but not least,  religious in nature.

      COVER PAGE:

      The wooden masks featured on this post cover page are from – Kenya’s Giryama people that hand carve these flat wooden post, to serve as tombstones called Kikangu.  Furthermore, the grave markers have several functions; representing the Giryama’s way of life as well as, the ancestor’s spirits are honored by erecting these post.  As a result, these markers also serves as conduit between the ancestral realm and the land of the living.

      The abstract and geometric forms and carved patterns of Kikangu serve as a roadmap representation of the spirit. The gravestone marker is also a tribute and blueprint of the deceased time on earth.

          Houghaard Malan’s stunning African landscape photography are perfect as wall art, in any home or office.  Malan bought is first SLR camera at the age of 19 and within two, years he was well on his way to turning his new found passion, landscape photography into a fulltime career.  “I am inspired by moments when the elements of nature combine as if painted by a god, to create scenes so beautiful that one has to take the time to stand back in awe and marvel at the beauty of the world we live in. I want my photos to remove the viewer from their present location and transport them to the scene so they can feel the wind and see the golden light of the setting sun on their skin. That is the purpose of a landscape photo, to experience the beauty of a place without being there.”
