Art beyond

the visible reality

The collection at galerie Arte Magica is mainly dedicated to the age-old West-African belief in a magic field that rules our earthy existence: Vodun (voodoo). The world of Vodun is a world in which ritual pots, figures made out of clay or wood and mysterious objects can attract gods, goddesses, ancestors and spirits. It is also a world in which Vodun gods have to be fed offerings so that the gods will not land people in disaster, and in which figures charged with powers can liberate an individual from a hopeless situation.

Fine examples of primitive money from Africa and the Oceanic region as well as a very interesting collection of ghurras from Nepal can also be found on this website.
