Art in the African Diaspora

I absolutely love African/African American/Caribbean art and ethnic art! I have accumulated quite a collection over the years. I owe it all to my father that introduced me to art as a child. It's not often that I purchase because that can be quite expensive. I wanted to show off the latest piece from my collection. This is a recent work that I purchased from the Bougie Black Boy out of NYC. He is a blog friend and a very talented painter and writer. this piece is currently nestled beside my bed until I get if framed and hung on the wall. I call this piece "Mosadi" which is Sesotho for woman. I absolutely love this piece! Thanks again Bougie! :)
This is one of my favorite wood carvings that I bought in the Caribbean while on vacation in the Bahamas in 2000. I had to have this piece! I was only able to purchase it after winning some money on the dollar slots at the Atlantis resort. I hit it big for $300.00 and went straight back to purchase this (I'm not a gambler so winning $300 after only spending less than $20 was big for me). I call this carving, "Moses."
