The   collection   at   Arte   Magica   is   mainly   dedicated   to   the   age- old   West-African   belief   in   a   magic   field   that   rules   our   earthy existence: Voodoo. The   world   of   Voodoo   is   a   world   in   which   ritual   pots   (Wen-Zen), figures    made    out    of    clay    (Legba)    or    wood    (Bochio)    and mysterious    objects    (fetish)    can    attract    gods,    goddesses, ancestors and spirits. It    is    also    a    world    in    which    Voodoo-gods    have    to    be    fed offerings   so   that   the   gods   will   not   land   people   in   disaster,   and in    which    figures    charged    with    powers    can    liberate    an individual from a hopeless situation. Fine   examples   of   primitive   money   from Africa   and   the   Oceanic region   as   well   as   a   very   interesting   collection   of   folk   art   from India   and   ritual   miniature   Dogon   ladders   from   Mali   can   also   be found on this website. Arte Magica guarantees the authenticity of all objects. Please    do    not    hesitate    to    contact    us    with    your    questions. Thank you for visiting our website. OPEN:    Wednesday,    Thursday,    Friday,    Saturday    from    12 o'clock and by appointment.
