This site was created to familiarize the public with African civilizations, to show the beauty of their statuary and try to help better understand them. Created for both you and for us, it is a forum for sharing, communicating, exchanging ideas and making contacts and connections.
We would like to be in contact with any African art galleries and any African art specialist in the world. Our faithful visitors, coming and returning to mémoire d'afrique always ask us where they can find these pieces, and at what price they can acquire them. Send us photographs of any parts pieces you may have to sell, their prices, your address, and how to contact you. We will be able to put you in direct contact with these collectioners. It goes without saying that this offer is completely well intentioned and free. It is valid however only for pieces from the 6 civilizations covered by the mémoire d'afrique site.
