The Fulani are one of the most widely dispersed groups in West Africa. This book focuses on one group, the Djolof Fulani, and takes a look at the Fulani castes, especially the griots and wood carvers. Its conclusion also discusses the problems of labelling objects as Fulani art. In particular it examines one kind of art, their milk bowls, which are made by men and decorated by women of the caste of wood carvers. There is an attempt to sort out the meaning and context of the geometric designs on the bowls. This study aims to fill a lacuna in the study of African art.
