African Images & art
The African continent is the dawn of human civilization. Kemet was the world's first monumental civilization. Africans developed most of the advanced math principles we use today (see AFRICAN ORIGIN OF MATHEMATICS).
African art is abstract oriented. African abstract art and monumental architecture has created a great impact on the art & architecture of Western Civilization. Kemet stylized the human figure and through the use of the cone, sphere and cylinder artists in Ille Ife were able to make you think you were seeing an idealized portrait of a person. African people believe that coping nature is offensive.
Africans produce their best artwork in sculpture. And most of that has been wood and/or stone. Africans excel in metal sculpture and textiles as well.
