This year I will participate in the Tribal Art Fair for the first time, showing a selection of 42 objects that will be shown on a special website.

The opening will be on April 29 at 3 p.m. and the online fair will close at 10 p.m. on May 3.

After that I will start to list these items here at mandarinmansion.com.

Tribal Art Fair

The TAF is an important international fair for tribal art from Africa, Oceania, Asia and North and South America. The public consists of collectors, dealers, museum curators and other interested parties. Offerings range from masks and statues, textiles, jewelry, utensils, and of course arms

I am looking forward to seeing you there!
