|Turn your back on conflict antiquities, |
would you buy freshly-surfaced
"art" like this?
|Boko Haram in Nigeria|
Tribal groups in the region include the Sao, Massa, Fulani, Hausa. Objects from these groups do not figure prominently on the "ethnic art" market, but the Nok/Jos objects coming from the central-south area of this zone do (see the trafficking culture entry for them).Who knows how this stuff is surfacing on the market now? I suspect the dealers who pedal the material would prefer not to be asked.
