  BACKGROUND
  The people known as Nyamwezi are a large, loosely connected agrarian group with shared cultural traits but diverse origins who live in north-central Tanzania. It was on the cost that they were given the name Nyamwezi, meaning people of the west (sometimes translated as people of the moon, because the new moon is visible only as it sets in the west). Ancestors and chiefs have been of considerable importance in the belief system and socio-political structure of the Nyamwezi, and consequently most of their art relates to these themes.
 
  Painter Fred Uhlman words - Most of the artists I admired, Picasso,    Modigliani, Deraini, to mention only a few, had collected African art and had    been profoundly influenced by it. Shortly afterwards I bought the Baule Fetish    and the Baule bobbin which are still two of the finest pieces in my    collection. It is easy to see why I bought them and why from that moment I    have never stopped collecting. The head of the bobbin or heddle - pulley which    is after all only a functional object for the purpose of weaving seemed to me    then and today as beautiful as a Greek goddess. The fetish moved me as deeply    as the bobbin by its silent tragic dignity and its air of profound meditation.
