The first museum I went to was my favorite I went to the Museum for African Art displaying the Hair exhibit The name of the exhibit sounded very uninteresting but Iwas proven wrong The first thing that I learned from this exhibit is that in Africa the wayyour hair is done represents your position in society Your hair was probably one of themost important if not thee most important thing to an African person A person wasdistinguished into which clan or group he or she was in by his or her hair style If youwere a very wealthy person your hair was extremely well done to make you stand out berespected and to show that you were from a high class Leadership was usually associatedwith wealth Also if a females hair was messy that showed that she was a prostitute Theway a child hair was showed how old he or she is For a baby child the hair was mostlycompacted near the fontanel part of the brain to protect the baby since that is the mostsensitive part of the babys brain Other signs that distinguished an African from anotherAfrican was his facial scars Facial scars doesnt mean he was sliced with a knife and wasphysically scared Facial scars was done by wearing masks They had three types ofmasks helmet paint and face mask Some clans that used these types of masks wereused by the Igala people in Nigeria and the Ngangala people in Angola One of my favorite exhibitions was the showing of the children doll by the Ashantipeople The Ashanti people gave their children dolls They didnt give their children thedolls to play with They gave it to them so that they can socialize with them and to takecare of them as if they were real human beings I dont think it was a good idea for theparents to give a child a doll to socialize because the doll couldnt talk back
