Bonhams Preview for Africa Now Auction March 10th

I went to the preview for the Africa Now auction today at Bonhams in NY. The focus is African Contemporary and Modern art. I know very little about African art, so for me it was an education. It's clearly a specialist auction for people that know the artists because the estimates for many items are high.

The sculptures caught my eye particularly. 

This sculpture above is by Ben Osawe and estimate at $8,000 - $12,000

This 5 foot tall sculpture is by Phutuma Seoka and is estimated at $3,000 - $5,000. Kind of reminds me of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. Very exuberant and fun.
