Malkia World Art
This downtown antique store basically displays the entire African craft items owner Maggie Johnson collected during her travels to Kenya and it's quite an impressive collection. The walls are covered with masks, spears and hatchets from different regions of Sub-Saharan Africa and there is a large array of clothing and jewelry, as well as statues of gods, spirits and men used in shamanic rituals. Note the big carved power figure from The Republic of Congo, intended to protect the villagers; it certainly looks scary enough for the purpose and yet retains its beauty.
I walked in was totally suprised at the wide wide varity of art that is there. The owner (Mrs. Johnson), was very familiar with Kenya and the local tribe there. I learned that she had made several trip there and was thus able to explain the personal as well as the artisic background of all the artwork in her shop. I would recogmend this store to anyone that is looking to give a gift that is out of the ordinary and for the hard to shop for person!!
