Presented by Dr. Herbert M. Cole, professor emeritus of history of art and architecture at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
Cole is author, co-author, or editor of eleven books on African arts including Maternity: Mothers and Children in the Arts of Africa.
“Defining maternity as a biological and cultural phenomenon, the author goes beyond obvious notions of fertility to consider the importance of maternity in thought, ritual action, and worldview. Maternity images of all eras evoke deep and significant messages – well beyond what meets the eye.”
