African art connoisseur

August 25, 2009

Aug_Emily_Masks_1African art – one gets fascinated and lost in the diversity.

Aug_Emily_Masks_2Each piece in this collection has a story that the collector shares with enthusiasm. 

A collection as diverse as the connoisseur.

Emilia Atanassova has an MA degree in African studies and is PhD in Development Economics from the Istitute for African Studies with the Russian Academy of Sciences. She has lived in Africa for over a decade.

Could history have had a different turn? Depends on the story-teller and (hi)story. In The Great Dictator‘s  final scenes, a switched identity throws light on a new better world. Hilarious and funny – two roles, one legend – Charles Chaplin – as Hitler and a Jewish barber.
