You can't collect AfricanArt without knowledge and years of experience, that is why I recommand to get advise before buying with african art art advisors before doing serious buyings.
When prices are low and you like the pieces, you don't care so much. But today the African Art prices are getting higher and higher, and you have much to lose in the game. So be smart, and check out the reputation from your art sellers and get if possible a econd opinion before doing an expensive acquisition.
