Africa's ritual dimension, born of a religious attitude toward life and death, toward family and ancestors, and of the need to seek protection from evil spirits, forms the core of this fantastic volume. Here are secret customs, beliefs and rituals never before seen in photographs. The power of oracles and initiation ceremonies are derived from a culture which through its myths attempts to grasp the meaning of nature, space and time, the gods and spirits, as well as interpret reality. With its insights into African ritual, closeness to nature, magic and witchcraft, ancestor worship, talismanic protection and healing methods, this work penetrates to the heart of African religion. Oh, and the photos are absolutely amazing in every respect!
