The exhibitors, drawn from the UK, Europe and Australia, are leading experts in their field. As organiser Bryan Reeves says: “The early works exhibited by dealers at Tribal Art London are all original period items made for intentional use, many of them museum-quality. There is a great deal of later work on the market today, made not for use in the tribe but to serve the consumer demands of a tourist trade. Our exhibitors source historic items, often with provenance, collected in the late 19th and first half of the 20th centuries by explorers, scientists and missionaries who would have lived alongside or known the peoples for whom these objects held great significance.”

    Shame I am going to miss the Tribal Art London fair a particular interest of mine. Most particular re-enacting British history in miniature, attempting to show the similarities between the various social and religious groupings of the 1100’s

    Hopefully some of my figures will gain entry into the next show at the Mall Galleries “The Royal Miniatures Society
