EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases an exquisite Efik brass charger from the 19th century, adorned with a striking central robed female figure. Crafted by the skilled Nigerian School, this piece is a testament to the rich artistic heritage of Old Calabar in South East Nigeria. The charger features two servants standing on either side of the female figure, one holding a fan and the other an umbrella, both made of brass. The circular shape and decorative technique employed in this artwork highlight its African origins and demonstrate meticulous attention to detail. Through this image, we are transported back in time to witness a glimpse of life in 19th-century Africa. The attendants' presence suggests that they were not merely accessories but integral members of society, serving their mistress with grace and elegance. This print captures not only the beauty of African art but also reflects upon themes such as occupation, household equipment, and personal accessories prevalent during that era. It serves as a reminder that art can be found even in everyday objects like crockery or domestic staff's attire. Bridgeman Images has skillfully captured this historic masterpiece through their lens, allowing us to appreciate its intricate design and cultural significance. As we gaze upon this remarkable work of art, we are reminded of Nigeria's vibrant artistic traditions and its contribution to global creativity throughout history.
