AFRICAN GOSPEL ART

The Life of Jesus Christ: An African Interpretation by the Mafa People in Cameroun

The Lord's Supper
The Lord's Supper

These exquisite 60+ multi-colour reproductions are set in Mafa country in traditional rural Cameroon, West Africa. The Mafa people portray these Gospel scenes as they imagine them from the perspective of their village culture in terms of dress, architecture, environment and customs. French Roman Catholic artists and photographers have contributed their skills to this production.

These reproductions are often used in African educational settings, but they are also popular in Canadian and American schools, churches and homes.

We have not been able to establish contact with their successors, but encourage you to try. We continue to advertise this art simply because we want people all over the world to know about it, have access to it and enjoy this dynamic presentation of the Gospel stories. It is simply fantastic. And though Jesus was not Black, at least this art shakes us loose from prison of the traditional Caucasian version of the Messiah and refreshes our spiritual imagination.
