Ritual Messengers

African Treasures from 
the Tervuren Museum, Belgium

  This exhibition unveiled treasures from the Royal Museum for Central Africa in Tervuren, Belgium. These masks, statues, figurines and carvings from the Tervuren Museum's vast collections — many of which had never been shown before — undoubtedly represent some of the highlights of Central African art.

It was on display at the Canadian Museum of Civilization from October 17, 1996
to May 19, 1997.
