Meet our FINE ARTISTS

Nasser el Din Taher, prior to his death in 2008 was one of Egypt's most celebrated artists for more than 40 years. Nubian by birth, he told the story of his people with intricate collages made of thousands of small and colorful bits of paper which he glued together to create his masterpieces. OLAfrica assisted with his final exhibition at the Cairo Opera House with fellow Nubian pen and ink artist, Ibrahim Sayed.

    

OLAfrica Memory Project is cataloguing both these rare collections and will invite your e-community groups to attend our first online auction of the Taher collection which will benefit the artist's widow.

ALABASTER from Upper Egypt and Northern Sudan

      

Alabaster is a stone. The name is said to be derived from the town of Alabastron, in Egypt, where the stone was quarried during the Pharaonic Period more than 300 years BC. Alabaster is a soft, smooth, fine-grained sedimentary gypsum rock. Generally white or delicately shaded and translucent, alabaster of substantial thickness (1-2 inches) allows light to pass through it. Black alabaster is rare and is only found in three veins in the world. The OnLine Africa Knowledge Hut can procure large and small orders for your group at below market prices. The quality of the stone and craftsmanship are GUARANTEED.
