The First Bastion
So, something I've been wanting to do for a long time was post about The Guardian's 1000 Artworks to See Before You Die list. It's from way back in 2008, so very old, but still I found it when I wanted to do an artwork thread and I wanted one that included not just painting, but also sculpture and performance art and all the weird modern conceptual stuff and everything. I'd love if we could talk about some of these works, but I'm also just kind of interested in just posting them.
The list is alphabetical and so it begins with the A's and the first entry is actually a category under which there are several sub-artworks listed, namely African Masks. All of the sub-artworks count as one of the 1000 though; it's not like "African Masks" is one entry in the thousand. Anyway, I may or may not continue, but here's the first one.
Mask with Multiple Horns (early 20th Century) - The Bamana People
Location: The British Museum
Of course, one of the many thorny issues that exploring the art world raises has to do with colonialism and cultural appropriation. This is a mask made by an African tribe and the multiple horns symbolizes the wearer's connection to God, so it's also a sacred artifact. And, of course, it's in The British Museum. That is, of course, quite icky and worth mentioning. This stuff really should be repatriated or at least, if museums want to keep these kinds of artifacts, the tribes in question should be compensated in the way that other artists are compensated. I mean, I do get a museum wanting to have African masks because they are cool art objects; but that should only happen with the consent of the artist and with fair compensation made. You know, just like any other art piece.
Just approaching it as an art-object, I do really like it. The animal head crest is meant to be an antelope and I think it's super-cool. I like the fact that the eyes are turned differently. I at first thought that one of the eyes was damaged, but I looked at it pretty closely (you can zoom way in on the image if you follow the link to the actual British Museum page) and it looks intentional. One slit pupil is vertical and the other is horizontal. Either way, it kinda looks like its winking.

I got my own joke earlier today in this Robert Redford as Matt Murdock doodle. So Red has two meanings here…
A rift on one of my favorite props in the DD series. Maybe I’ll try this again with more details when time and such permit it.
Phil Noto The Vigil homage. I love his soft line work on faces.
