African Art Against Nazi's. This picture was taken in 1942. Somewhere in Africa. Here, at length, is the witch doctor and his USA airplane, the P-40 or "steam-chicken" as the bushmen call it. Civilization advances into the inner sanctums of the medicine men, and penetrates the Dark Continent, which for hundreds of years held to tribal masks passed down from generation to generation.

Supplanting it with the stronger ju-ju of the white man, the medicine men construct these planes, complete with antenna and the U.S. star, and descend on the tribe in flying echelon, as the evil spirits of the Nazis are driven out of the black man's territory.

African Art

Somewhere in Africa. Modern science takes its place beside old time African fetishes, as the witch doctors rest between dances. The fish are typical examples of customary ju-ju that has come down through ages of the Dark Continent's history, and the American-built RAF (Royal Air Force) Consolidated Liberator is a sample of the head masks used by the dancers who have streamlined imagination and appreciate the white man's stronger ju-ju
