Faces from Africa (1)

Face to face

 

A few years ago, at an auction sale, I bought a collection of, what I think are, African masks and carvings.  They fascinated me although I knew (and still know) nothing of their true ethnic origins.  They were bought purely for their decorative properties.  It seemed a good idea at the time but I have never found a use for them, nor was I able to raise any interest on ebay!  Perhaps their hour has come!

The average height of the originals is around 30cm.  Because they are individual items I have ‘created’ backgrounds that I feel to be appropriate and have occasionally adjusted saturation and contrast levels to make details a little more clear.  It is my intention to post the resulting images in small groups under the heading Faces from Africa.  This post comprises the first selection.

Grasses dancing in the sunshine

I particularly enjoyed the light, the movement, the textures and the colours in this scene.  Beauty in chaos!
