I have spent quite a bit of time updating the links within my African Art
Online Lesson.
Many links going to outside sites were broken. All have been replaced with
even better sites.

There is LOTS to see! Some of the "goodies" I found while correcting links:
Dogon - Niger - Lobi - Excellent photographs of the people and region.
this is a super site-- once you know what culture you are looking for. LOTS
to see!
African Art Museum - Online Collection -- collection of African tribal art
featuring over 1,200 artifacts from 100 ethnic groups. Items on display
include wooden and bronze statues, masks, religious, ritual and domestic
objects, furniture and weapons. Learn about art, culture and history of each
ethnic group. Start your museum tour by clicking on the tribe names.
