Dynasty and Divinity: Ife Art in Ancient Nigeria author Henry John Drewal, a noted scholar of Yoruba and African diaspora arts, explores the significance of Ife's stone, terra-cotta, and metal sculptures in the context of Yoruba history and culture. In the introductory essay, Enid Schildkrout, an anthropologist who has curated major exhibitions on Africa, shows how this first assemblage of the full range of Ife art gives the most complete portrayal of an ancient African city ever presented in a single exhibition. Softcover: 200 pages. Dimensions: 8.5 x 11". Dynasty and Divinity: Ife Art in Ancient Nigeria was on view at the Indianapolis Museum of Art from July 8, 2011 - January 16, 2012.
