From randafricanart.com. And I think I read the following from Shaman: the wounded healer by Joan Halifax:
This art is not art for art, rather it is art for survival for it gives structure and coherence to the unfathomable and intangible. By ‘making’ that which is the unknown, the shaman attains some degree of control over the awesome forces of the mysterium.
