An introduction provides background on the history, art, and culture of Benin, and the illustrations are accompanied by expert commentary that summarizes the latest research on Benin art.

  • "comprehensive in the world. Among the objects--many reproduced in full color--are brass heads depicting past kings and queen mothers, free-standing brass figures, exquisite plaques, insignia of office, cast brass and carved ivory bracelets, carved elephant tusks, personal ornaments, musical instruments, court furnishings, and more. Black-and-white and color photographs of related objects and actual ceremonies help place the collection within its cultural and historical."
  • "For more than 500 years, the artists of the West African kingdom of Benin created objects in brass, ivory, terracotta, and wood for use in divine kingship rituals, to adorn the royal palaces, and to identify the king, chiefs, warriors, and other officials at court. This volume presents a recent gift to The Metropolitan Museum of Art of over 150 works of Benin sculpture, making the Museum's collection of sixteenth- to nineteenth-century Benin art one of the most."
