Beginning this month, the World Forestry Center will host a rare collection of Makonde ebony sculptures.
The exhibit will run from May 6 through Sept. 17 in the second-floor gallery of the Discovery Museum, 4033 S.W. Canyon Road.
One of five major tribes in Tanzania, the Makonde originally migrated north from Mozambique to the southern Tanzanian highlands. They are known as master carvers throughout East Africa and have been carving ebony for centuries for their own enjoyment and use.
