This exhibition catalog (musée du quai Branly, from November 19, 2019 to March 29, 2020) explores the many ways in which this element has been melted and forged by Africans, masters of fire and transformation. The Iron Age revolutionized Africa and forever transformed civilization from a practical, symbolic and cosmological point of view. For over two millennia, ironwork has been deeply shaping African cultures, offering a particularly diverse and sophisticated set of wrought iron tools and shapes. This book is the presentation of the art of African blacksmiths and their role in community life the most comprehensive ever done in the world.
