The Yoru`ba´ was one of the most important civilizations of sub-Saharan Africa. While the high quality and range of its artistic and material production have long been recognized, the art of the Yoru`ba´ has been judged primarily according to the standards and principles of Western aesthetics. In this book, which merges the methods of art history, archaeology, and anthropology, Rowland Abi´o?´du´n offers new insights into Yoru`ba´ art and material culture by examining them within the context of the civilization's cultural norms and values and, above all, the Yoru`ba´ language. He begins by establishing the importance of the concepts of ori´ki`, the verbal and visual performances that animate ritual and domestic objects, such as cloth, sculpture, and dance; and a`s?e?, the energy that structures existence and that transforms and controls the physical world. Both concepts served as the guiding principles of Yoru`ba´ artistic production. Through analyses of representative objects, Abi´o?´du´n demonstrates how material culture expresses the key philosophical notions at the heart of the Yoru`ba´ worldview. Abi´o?´du´n draws on his fluency and prodigious knowledge of Yoru`ba´ culture and language to dramatically enrich our understanding of Yoru`ba´ civilization and its arts. The book includes a companion website with audio clips of the Yoruba language, helping the reader better grasp the integral connection between art and language in Yoruba culture.
