Beautiful African Art

Africa is a land of traditions and cultures. Today, to raise awareness of different cultures and traditions in Africa, the Ministry of Tourism and the government sponsors sell African art from African museums and art galleries.

African works of art for sale can be in the form of masks, pottery, sculptures, knives, spears, hats or breathtaking jewelry. Many galleries and museums have them for display, and a very small number of them also sell works of art.

In this way, they not only help the economic development of the African people, but they also impart a sense of public appreciation of African works of art. African works of art is usually sold in local bazaars within the country to tourists on vacation. Purchasing authentic African works of art can sometimes be difficult, so it is wise to employ agents to help you out.

 

Common themes

There are some common themes that can be noticed with African works of art and which reflects African culture.

The first is the religious works which could be likened to that found in the Vatican. The second is the purely African works of art which represents distinctly African themes. The mother and child are also a recurring theme in African works of art. This theme reflects the value that people place on African motherhood and the relationship between mothers and their children. Aside from this, another common theme is the representation of couples that are supposed to be representations of the founders or ancestors of the community.  Animal forms and prints are also quite popular to reflect the vast number of incredible species living on the African continent.

If you want to indulge in traditional art, you must have a look at African works of art since it is one of the oldest traditional arts. Africa is home to the traditional arts, which can be found in different styles.

 

Masks

The most popular of all the treasures of African works of art are African masks. They are considered the most beautiful creations of art, and they are considered the perfect example for African crafts. Many such masks hang in museums around the world.

People most commonly wore masks during ritual ceremonies. A popular mask that is well known is the Baga tribal Nimba mask of female fertility.

 

Sculptures

Wooden sculptures are famous in Africa and so are exported worldwide. Most of these sculptures are very decorative and looks natural. These sculptures represent different cultures, which varies from one region to another.

 

Culture

When it comes to the African culture, local tribes are the first to come to mind. Today, African tribes have lived in harmony with nature, where their lifestyles remain unchanged. Some strange beliefs are also in existence in Africa that life is controlled by spirits and that there are sorcerers who practice spiritual powers through sacrifices.

 

Styles

African works of art is traditionally designed with wood and stone, but today, many metals are also used in the design. African works of art has been redefined as an art made on the continent in order to reflect the diversity of the population of Africa.

Much of the African works of art are designed with symbols that have profound meanings. Typically, bracelets and necklaces are fashioned out of horn components, stone beads, and the like. This gives African jewelry a classic yet stylish look.

If you want to be able to dress to impress, then you should go for African jewelry and African art because they are known to lend their own style and beauty to a look, reflecting the culture and lifestyle of the beautiful people who live in Africa.

Politics

Currently, Rwanda and Burundi are lobbying to be included in the main states in this region of Africa. Having much in common gives three advantages many states as wider market for goods which in turn attract more investors.

Africa has a huge potential. It is an assortment of nature’s wonders, a rich culture, as well as various ecological characteristics. However, it is also known as one of the least stable and poorest countries in the continent. Many strategies have been tested, but the destiny of Africa ultimately rests on the shoulders of its leaders

 

Art

African art is one of the most popular art trends in the world today. However, I’ve noticed that most collectors of African art have not the slightest idea about how to recognize if a piece of African art as authentic or not.

Masks and costumes have played an important role in human society for thousands of years. Masks could be used to celebrate weddings and harvest time, as well as to prepare for war and peace. Masks were also used as representations of animals, gods, and ancestors. The use of African tribal masks usually involves dancing, singing and prayer, all integral parts of African culture.

African masks can be made out of materials that are as diverse as brass, raffia, animal skins, and ivory. They are often fashioned out of clay or wood and are usually brightly colored. Such masks are wonderful for adding drama and class to your home. Such masks are also very easy to mix with other decorations such as African textiles, designs, African art, African artifacts to bring another culture in your home.They are great for generating conversation among your guests as well.

Understanding the meaning of each tribal African masks is important to help you decide who should occupy a place in your home. Tribal masks are highly sought after by collectors, museums and some eclectic designers. There are even groups that participate in several international African Art Fairs every year, not to mention the many people that engage in african travel as well.

Revisiting Black History

Black History Week has been celebrated every year during the second week of February. Woodson organized this holiday after February 7, 1926. At this period, in the early twentieth century, the history of Blacks was not studied at all, and African Americans were not represented well in the history books. Born in 1875, 10 years after the Civil War, Woodson grew up in unfavorable conditions of poverty. Then he moved to become the second black to obtain a Ph.D. in history from Harvard University. Woodson never married; however, he devoted 30 years of his life working to illuminate the contributions that Blacks made in the world. He has helped shaped this country over the last 150 years or more. He was ahead of his time in a world created against the hands of time, and he captures a compromised prophecy.

In those days, Black women oftentimes have been ridiculed regarding their choices in their hairstyles. Enslaved Black women wore hats, bonnets, or head-wraps while their normal counterparts wore their hairs straightened, combed, and parted. In recent times, Black women choose to change old-fashioned West hairdos and hairstyles and go for a more colorless look. Most women today still need to be smarter and work even harder to be accepted into a “mans” job.

As an artist, I like the artistic expression of the black community, which often embodies their history, culture, and context. As a product of the 1950s, my generation has learned the pillars of history. Duke Ellington is a Jazz musician and is considered by many as a “founding father” in the development of American music, probably the most accomplished in history. Known for his remarkable speed, LeVias was three times All-SWC selection, and he held and received most of the records in the football league for almost two decades.

I think black skin is a shield for many white men. I’m trying to convince a white man to go out with a black face and live as a black man. At some point in history, the description could be used to describe human slaves emulating other slaves. I missed visiting my grandfather, a slave by less than 20 years before my birth. It took a war to change the law of slavery and 100 years to change the mentality of inferior quality. African Americans made enormous contributions to this country by their blood, sweat, and tears, unpaid and enjoyed for hundreds of years.

Because of the cultural effects of slavery and persecution for several generations, in a given situation, a person must walk with dark introspection that few other groups tend to consider. In Ireland, the Irish language was banned for 400 years. Koi San, the first inhabitants of the Western Cape, are treated like dogs by all racial groups. The nationalities of Black American ancestors are a mystery to the vast majority of the group. American descendants of African slaves stand as captives and slaves in the nation, but the glory of conquering is share with other groups. It was erected when Woodson organized the “Negro History Week,” and the torch became larger in the 1960s when it was extended to a month. Black History Month is the progression of the previous recognition of the “Negro History Week,” which began in 1926.

African Food Recipes

Eritrean food is one of the healthiest foods in the world. Another thing that is very common in these African recipes is that the recipes are the delight of top Indian cuisine. There are some leaders who try new things and change the way these recipes were traditionally made, to see the good food in a little different light. When we started to explore these recipes, were were pleasantly surprised at how easy most recipes are. Indian recipes like rajma, Bhindi Fried dum Aalo are from this heritage of extravagant African cuisine.

The rich taste of African food, desserts and starters and wide varieties will make your dining experience memorable. Not only tasty, but we can say that African food can be very healthy and nutritious. The recipes vary from region to region, each state has its own range of cuisines, many that are famous around the world.

A Perspective on Black Leaders

The question of leadership in Africa is a very complex issue. The majority of African leaders chose evil instead of love for their country. Honesty and sincerity are the most important things for a leader, and most Black leaders do not have that kind of thing. African leaders have not paid attention to their country and their actions. Most African leaders such as Kenyans, Liberians, Zimbabweans, Congolese, and Malawians must now concentrate on their country, and bad leaders must be replaced. Someone said, “We bring all these leaders and kill them all to have peace in Africa.” I think it is high time that we start a dialogue with our heads rather than simply tax on what to do and what not to do.

The list of countries with the most inequality and with unequal income was released on the basis of the Gini index, which is recognized by the CIA. Ghana, a West African Anglophone country, was formerly known as the “Gold Coast” because of its abundant reserves of gold, and its capital Accra is a former colony of Great Britain. The Ugandan capital Kampala is gaining its independence from Great Britain. Rwanda was colonized by Belgium, and its capital is Kigali. The capital of Cameroon is Yaounde, which was colonized at different times by France, Britain, and Germany. Togo’s capital Lom is a country that speaks French.

In West Africa, Togo is bordered by Ghana on the west, Benin on the east, and Mali on the north. Zambia is located in the southern part of Africa. In the case of Lesotho, it is surrounded by South Africa. Zimbabwe’s capital is Harare, which has been ruled by Robert Mugabe since its independence. Namibia is one of the youngest countries in Africa that has gained independence from South Africa, and Windhoek is its capital. The capital of Malawi is Lilongwe, the largest city, but it is now called Blantyre, a commercial center with a population of nearly 500,000 people.

Africa is also growing at a rapid pace and equal to attract private bankers from around the world. Recent surveys conducted by international organizations show that qualified specialists, particularly in the finance and banking, are very popular in the BRIC countries and some African countries. You can also access great African rivers like the Zambezi and Shire. In addition, some of the countries mentioned above have really cool-looking flags, such as Swaziland.

All these leaders have the same habits in governing their country. Most leaders in Africa have worked against the interests of their own nation. Like King David, Black leaders have abused their authority to get what they want. Good leadership is all about the service you provide to the nation and to your country. In addition, good leaders must have a good grip on the knowledge, skills, and relevant skills. As long as we love our country, we must do everything we can to secure and maintain our country’s integrity and guide others to move forward.

A View on African American Culture

Black slavery developed in the American continent. Blacks did not enter the United States by choice. I do not think the cause of slavery is to create a high sense among whites, but it had a greater influence on the Black Nation. I had never thought that the psycho-sociological factors do contribute to the distrust of the majority of Blacks for Whites. By my life, I had many friends from different cultures and races, including the African American culture. It is important because I can associate with others, respecting our differences, and still be a black person with my Black heritage and resources. I will not pretend that I know how black people feel; I was only brushed by it. I cannot be a racist, but I cannot stop thinking about the combination of Whites and Blacks.

At the beginning, Afro-American spirituals, gospel, and blues reflect the poverty and oppression of slaves in the South. Blacks have no choice but to accept the ambiguity of relations with Africa and the reality of farming in America. As Du Bois had said, The “Negro minister” or doctor, African American artists, or “black scholar” have little contrast when they serve the people. African Americans had made enormous contributions to this country by their blood, sweat, and tears, unpaid and enjoyed for hundreds of years. In language learned after World War 2, “race” slowly began to change to “ethnicity.” Irish American, for example, does not pertain to “race” but became an “ethnic group.”

Finding a book on Black American culture that is not imbued with the mentality of victimization is like finding a needle in a haystack. I remember some of the books had at least ten names. All the books on the shelf are proof that discrimination was, and probably still is, a big problem. Frequently spending my evenings browsing bookstores helped reinforce the idea in my mind that the genre is alive and well. We live in a small house with two rooms and a hall, one bedroom, and an office, and a small library is essential to complete at home. Stockett wrote a book from the point of view of several characters, including two African American women working as maids in Mississippi in the 1960s. John WcWhorter has written two books in circulation addressing and dealing with victimology of Black Americans. Black victimology stresses on how we are oppressed by the enemy.

A seasoned veteran black comedian or writer is known to be highly virulent toward Caucasians, constantly blaming them for the oppression of Blacks. I think it is important for Whites to understand why some Blacks have a hard time letting go. Mentally, Negro slavery still exists in our culture. Some critics have debated that such no longer exists because the American culture no longer deals with problems such as Jim Crow laws and slavery. This is why Blacks are still in a ball of confusion. During Reagan’s term, Blacks were hit by a mandatory minimum sentence harder than any race has been targeted at any time. Blacks kill other Blacks more than Whites kill Blacks. Many African Americans make self-harm and wonder why they are usually in a poor predicament. Generation X may be the first group of blacks who experienced more social acceptance since slavery.

The truth is if the White man wanted to return to enslaving a Black man, he could do much more damage with a black face. In 1926, the Black Bottom became fashionable and replaced the Charleston. The University I attended is part of a mega-million lawsuit to recover the funds that were denied to Black colleges in the past years. I had about 20 Whites and 5 Blacks in my classes per day. It has affected everything we do, and dating in Black culture has not escaped its influence. In fact, my years there helped me to see how the culture and heritage could produce healthy Black people. Dating in African American culture used to start with meeting the girl, perhaps at school or the library. African American online dating services help people find matches for friendship, dating, and love. Blacks need to return to their first love.

Keeping an Eye on African News

Each of us cannot do without the latest information. Usually, news from all over the world could reach other parts of the globe within seconds. Any event that happens in any part of the world that can make important news can reach people in a few seconds with information and images. It can even reach people living in remote locations. This link becomes more and more popular for people in different parts of the world. Radio is the best way to provide a new different world for them. The most recent African news is about political turmoil, civil wars, unrest in the country, and changes in government. Regularly keeping an eye on news in Africa is very important for the economy of many countries.

I’ve always wondered what makes Africa lagging among different continents in terms of economic growth and prosperity. With the end to many military conflicts, the availability of abundant natural resources and economic reforms have fostered a better business climate and helped propel the economic growth of Africa. Africa is a continent rich in natural resources, and this has been attracting people from all over the world for control of these resources. West Africa needs better connections to South America, the route with the best growth potential.

In the rest of Africa, South Africans are often considered arrogant. South Africans may think they know what people in the other parts of the continent need. People in South Africa are ignorant of other local cultures and attitudes. A person belonging to this particular location resides in other parts the world for many reasons. Many people in various countries that have not received basic education are unable to read or write. All these factors have led to many types of disturbances in various African countries.

Like every continent, African countries are facing their own internal challenges. In a recent report, research firm Nielsen noted consumer’s attitudes towards African technology, fashion, and how they spend their free time vary considerably. In African news, sensational stories sell more than talk of how ordinary Africans continue to live their daily lives as any other human being in other parts of the world. Family values, solidarity, collective attachment to ethnicity, and religious beliefs are part of the African culture in the broadest sense. When Africans are capable and courageous enough to maneuver and go beyond their misguided political leaders, the real Africa will emerge.

PwC interviewed 32 South African leaders in the ICT sector, financial services, industrial products, consumer products, and services industries. South African companies underestimate transportation costs and ignore how local laws and regulations affect their doing business. The South African Reserve Bank has warned in May that the financial crisis in Europe, which represents 25% of exports from South Africa, poses significant risks. A survey published by PwC CEO revealed that 94% of business leaders in South Africa expect their business to grow over the next 12 months.

We are sitting on a shelf of LCC growth in South Africa, and the airfield once occupied South African Air Force airbase. Venter said that a hybrid model airplane business was already emerging, with airlines reducing their services and LCC to be approaching full service airlines. In the same vein, Koustav Dhar, CEO of Jagson Airlines, a regional Indian airline, noted that Africa was the new land of golden opportunity for the airline business. The airline is based in Luanda and has a large domestic flight network to other parts of Africa and also South America. Flights from South Africa in Kinshasa or Lubumbashi can be expensive, and hotel rates are also very high. Unlike their counterparts overseas, local LCC are subject to the same taxes and fees as full service airlines because they are less expensive. Growth is barely past standard and will be maintained, and LCC tickets will increase in the future.

China’s trade with Africa reached $ 160 billion in 2011, making it the continent’s main trading partner. Up to 4,000 business flights are expected in Shanghai during the World Expo and 6,000 for private flights a year by 2015. The Economist, a London-based magazine, reported last month that since they regrettably labeled Africa as a “hopeless continent” a decade ago, an intense change has taken hold—impressive growth of the continent should continue. Many South African companies are not aware of the high costs associated with conducting business in the continent. United States consulting firm Ernst & Young reports that “There’s a new story emerging from Africa: a history of growth, progress, and potential profitability of many businesses.” The country is now considered one of the main contenders for investment on the African continent.

All this growth and urbanization exert pressure on social services in the cities; it has also led to an increase of urban consumers. Added to this, currently, there are more than half a billion mobile phone users in Africa, while improved skills and increased literacy are assigned to a 3% increase in productivity. Mobile service providers offer information services to their subscribers for free or for a small fee for people to be updated on events while they are traveling. There are several portals that provide information for free or for a very reasonable fee. You can get exclusive African news portals these days easily.

African Politics in a Nutshell

Some online videos monitor, analyze, and present the world’s news coverage, especially on African politics. With the latest news at your disposal instantly, there’s no need to wait for the morning paper or the evening bulletin. Some websites on the Internet are complete sources of bi-directional news, public affairs, commentary, and lifestyle and entertainment. With the latest news videos online available to you at any time, you can stay well connected.

The world is looking for someone respectable as its leader. As long as we’re stuck in greed and cruelty towards others, the world will remain cruel. Regardless of which man is sitting in the seat of authority, the world will continue along the same path. There will be no justice, no peace, or harmony. Determining changes of the past decision is issued in the genetic nucleus of all Americans.

There may be some connection with the assumption that Blacks excel in sports at a higher rate than non-Blacks. No doubt, Paul Robeson was considered as one of the most versatile Black performer in American history. Barack Obama seems to have less in common with other notables, but more with militant African American leaders. With Barack Obama among African American giants, the history of our country is secure, not like in African politics.

After the Civil War, slavery was considered illegal in which there was a resurgence of the period of modern African American art. The African American art runs in the two cultures that are centered with traditions and customs of the slave trade, which have refined emancipation, discrimination, assertiveness, and colonialism. The African American art was supported by Roosevelt after the work was moved from the Works Progress Administration. Blacks did not enter the United States by choice. Black folks in this country often turned around to get the best of the master. Blacks have no choice but to accept the ambiguity of relations with Africa and the reality of farming in America. If it was not for Whites, Blacks would still be slaves.

I think my black skin protected me in many situations. I’m trying to convince a White man to go out with a black face and live as a Black man. I was so in African studies in my undergraduate degree and took a course on that subject. I have not seen the same level of suspicion among the Xhosa of South Africa that I served for two years as a missionary. I think it is important for Whites to understand why some Blacks have a hard time letting go. It took a war to change the law of slavery and 100 years to change the mentality of inferior quality. I wish more people, especially Black people, be more aware of these things. In fact, my years there helped me to see how the culture and heritage could produce healthy Black people.

There would no Walimi Americans or Americans Bangelima, just Africans because tribes and nations were blended to prevent camaraderie through language. When you hear about racism between Italian and African Americans, it was usually between men. Italian Americans specialize in pasta, and African Americans specialized in meat. Blacks were hit by a mandatory minimum sentence of Reagan harder than any race has been targeted at any time. Sin is why blacks are still in a ball of confusion.

If you want to travel to Africa, South Africa is a great place to start. Renting a car is easy, and you can also book online in all major cities; however, you can get better deals by calling some of the smaller operators. Tourists can never be truly satisfied with South Africa as the country has many mysteries to offer. It has an extraordinary history, and some great figures in South African politics such as Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko were born here. The gallery offers recognition of heritage in Southern Africa. The climate of South Africa ranges from desert and semi-desert in the north to subtropical in the west and in the east coast. Johannesburg is the most populous city in Southern Africa. As a result, flights to South Africa are provided by different travel companies. While you can fly into any country in South Africa, most of these flights go through the whole of South Africa anyway.

African Business in Today’s Times

The notion of time in African business is very different. Companies that have great potential also may fail in an African environment if it is not properly adapted and packaged according to the culture of the people. Most companies set up their offices in urban centers away from rural areas, which are their main targets. I’m talking about people who have made small and medium enterprises in Africa for decades—Europeans, Americans, and Asians. Social marketing is one of the most in-demand methods in the Net today that can help you with your business here in South Africa.

Most marketers here in South Africa find Web marketing to be very effective to help them reach their target customers and sales in no time at all. Believe me; you’d be surprised of the powerful results of these Web marketing tools, and so it was that I officially became a “specialist of Africa” or “Africanist.” This social marketing trick will also help you to promote your brand even more that will surely help you increase your profits. In this article, I will share with you powerful Web marketing tools which would definitely help your business prosper. Most social traders here have used and tested many of these effective and powerful marketing tips. One way to apply this Web marketing tool is to have a board for day.

Use some less privilege staff and empower people by making them your “marketing ambassadors.” Learn to give and share, especially in times of distress. Giving and sharing love is the true African way for sustainable growth and acceptance by the people. Make special hampers for staff and customers at festive times or religious meetings. Through social marketing idea, you will certainly be able to meet many people who also share the same interest as yours. Finally, acceptance of products should be considered a cultural change; therefore, standards and values of the people should be taken into account when entering the African market. Most people do not really seriously believe in Africa as a haven investment, simply because of the high level of poverty of the local population.

It is not wise to enter the African market with a single source of income. Plant a “money tree” in your African company. No day should be wasted to realize your dream of success, even in the business climate in Africa. A trip to Africa is no longer a highlight for, in some cases, the effectiveness and efficiency of law enforcement officers may be missing. Throughout your stay or if you are traveling through, remember what part of the city you are. Know your destination in advance. Buy a guide, or better yet, spend some time online to study your destination.

In 1975, after the Rose Revolution took place in Portugal, the African colonies gained independence and began to build socialism. In addition, the current system of international protection promotes corruption in Africa and other donor countries, and is largely responsible for the destruction of the African economy. During the time of its independence, African countries have received aid internationally amounting to more than 2 billion dollars. However, given that not all South Africans can speak the English language well, they now look to hire someone who will write high quality items for them. Now the choice is up to you to take advantage of these opportunities available on the huge African business market.

Countries in Africa with Economic Potential

Many countries in Africa have in fact very stable political and economic conditions that are appropriate for foreign investors to develop. More than half of its 53 countries are great places for business development. The economic recession in recent years took part in favor of African countries; more investment came to them. In 2011, there is a reduction in the inflow of foreign investment in Africa, but do not forget that this is expected to double by 2014. Many countries, including those involved with Africa, consider various African countries so they can cope and make investments. Undoubtedly, international investors consider African countries as an ideal place for business investment.

Africa Star, a consulting firm based in London supported by the African Rainbow Council, conducted a survey in which the result praises many African countries. According to them, the top 5 potential African destinations for investors are as follows: Nigeria, Ethiopia, South Africa, Mauritius, and lastly, Tanzania. Among the top five, Ethiopia, Mauritius, and Tanzania are somewhat familiar to investors. Nigeria and South Africa were the most sought after by many foreign investors due to its economy.

There are also other countries, apart from Nigeria and South Africa, where strategic planning may command campaign investment. A large number of fisheries also take place in Lake Malawi, and the country exports a lot of it in other countries. Then, we move to West Africa, where we have Ghana. Ghana is one of the fastest growing democracies in Africa, and it currently has a lot of tourist sites available to anyone who goes there. Asia is the only continent other than Africa which is perceived by foreign investors as being ahead of Africa in terms of future economic growth.

Surgical disposable products and other health supplies are up these days. Under the brand name MediGuard from India, demand for disposable surgical supplies, hospital equipment, and other health care supplies are met. Surgical disposable products are very easy to use and very affordable as well. With these products on the market, the risk of infectious diseases is at the bare minimum. Infrastructures are most likely not so good in African countries, but the possibilities are still extremely profitable. African countries have risks that are staged by organized business environment and, of course, by the possibility of flooding.

Countries in Africa offer frontier markets, which are very profitable to deal with in a business investment. Most volunteers go abroad, volunteering in places where they feel they can make a difference. Outside volunteer work, there are also a number of other things that can be done in these countries. When considering tourism in African countries, Rwanda and Uganda are the famous tourist destinations. You can also access great African rivers like the Zambezi and Shire, and everything else in this country.

The long dry season is the best time to go on a Gorilla Safari. Animal experts have thought to find a place for the protection of gorillas and also earn income in these areas through Gorilla Safaris. In some selected locations such as Uganda and Rwanda, Gorilla Safaris are available. Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which are occupied by families of gorillas, is located in Uganda, which is considered an ideal place for Gorilla Safaris.

Like Uganda, Rwanda also provides gorilla tracking, which is the first tourist destination in the country; it also offers other entertainment for your trip. One of the incredible creatures that are most likely to be human is gorillas. Gorillas also live in peace, and they are very shy. To protect the gorillas, Gorilla Safaris became an important thing. The main strategy in the protection of these gorillas is to comfort them through interaction with their same kind. When compared to other animals, gorillas are intellectual and able to learn sign language too; they are wisely behaving like men.
