Ousmane Sow

What a guy. The sculptures are stunning. You look at them one way, they look not quite primitive enough. Another view, and the subtelty of the faces and postures is unbelievable. In the book I saw yesterday, some of the photos of his sculpures in African villages looked like folks were living with their departed spirits. I want to see more.
