Pagan Costumes of Africa

I’m a firm believer in the fact that ancient humans traded not only in goods, but in also cultural ideas. When you look at Phyllis Galembo’s pictures of West Africans celebrating masquerade. The similarities between Europeans celebrating their pagan festivals such as the Wilder Mann in Germany is striking! Maybe it’s just my worldview; I also like to see how different cultures have brought us together, not tore us apart. That is why to me a Thor’s Hammer does not represent white power as some misguided humans would like it to, but a symbol of the wide travels, cultural exploration and trading that the Vikings did all over the globe. Phyllis Galembo’s photos are a fantastic representation of African pagan practices and celebrations. Check out this beautiful gallery of self expression…plus our feature on European Pagan Costumes!
