Handicraft Findings From Africa

By: Paul Shane

"Its gonna take a lot to drag me away from you, I bless the rains down in Africa"

Listening to this song, Africa by Toto, always reminds - What a beautiful place Africa is! The Serengeti, the tribes and clans, the Kilimanjaro, the Olympus and everything about the place that is so close to nature and far from the maddening conurbation. And when we talk about Africa and its tribal populace, how can we forget the handicraft findings of Africa? The handicraft of Africa do not need any introduction. They are famous, much sought after and there are good reasons why they are so.

There is a distinct and rich flavour to everything that is African and that is close to nature. Very earthy, yet very classy - that's what they are. And so are the handicraft findings of this place. The beautiful, magnificent and unique designs are so different from handicraft findings from other parts of the world, yet they make you feel that you recognise them and you have always known them.

From the traditional African carvings to masks that are hand crafted and painted with the natural colours, from the show pieces made of wood and wood carvings to pottery and different clay objects, there is a huge variety of handicraft findings. These handicraft findings are now enjoying their rightful place in homes in different parts of the world, luxury hotels, corporate houses etc. where they are appreciated and marvelled at.

And while we are talking about the of Africa, we can not do justice by forgetting the hand crafted from African tribal lands. Excellent bead work, astonishing usage of brass, dazzling South African diamonds encrusted in jewellery of gold and platinum, stunning pearls and shimmering crystals are some of the offerings from this continent, that are adulated and exported to different corners of the world. Nothing beats a diamond studded tribal design jewellery. There is so much that the green lands of Africa has to offer, that it really would take a lot to drag one away from her.
