African Musical Instruments For Sale

The gallery’s musical instruments are all unique creations. Carved from a long wooden cylinder, they are grooved and decorated along their entire length. Perched at the top of the cylinder is a sculpture of a smiling, dancing figure of indeterminate gender, with a wooden circle tied to one of its legs; the musician moves the wooden circle along the cylinder in a fixed rhythm. There are six such instruments in the gallery, each of which is subtly distinct in shape from the others.
