Indigenous artifacts are difficult to categorize, as they represent hundreds of different, independent cultures all over the world. However, they do share some common characteristics in their distance from post-colonialism and their influential relationships with their land—these are the common threads that Skinner gathers in the upcoming Tribal Art Online auction. It showcases everything from woven textiles to household items, pottery to jewelry. An extraordinary collection of Frank Rinehart’s Native American Indian photographs is this auction’s standout, with 24 detailed portraits from the late 19th century. Several unusual pieces also catch the eye, including a pair of Eskimo snow goggles and an elaborate tooth necklace from the Mande people in West Africa.
