"For me it’s important that the objects I collect are used ritually; this is the special part of traditional African art. It has meaning, it’s not just beauty for beauty’s sake, it’s beauty for magic, power and expression."

"It’s important to learn as much as you can; visit museums and read books. You can also learn by touching pieces, follow pieces with your fingers. It’s the only way to identify if an object has been used."
