African Traditions on Bonfire

Pentecostal doctrine quickening loss of valuable Nigerian artifacts
 ACHINA, Nigeria: Born in a family of traditional priests in southeastern Nigeria, 52-year-old Ibe Nwigwe converted to Christianity as a boy. Under the sway of born-again fervor as a man, he gathered the paraphernalia of ancestral worship — a centuries old stool, a metal staff with a carved wooden handle and a carved god figure — and burned them as his pastor watched. read African traditions on bonfire in Nigeria

Art Rage OUR NAMES and genealogy were taken away by slavery, but the scramble for art has also removed important pieces of Africa’s historical jigsaw.

"art rage" comment: The Africans are still not happy with the past. Not everything is black or white, gray is also a shade of color, and African People also are dealing in African Art, or sold things in the past. Not all African Art comes from "punitive expeditions" or is art rage looted.
