Note to the homeowner, when you speak about your western art, you refer to the pieces by the artists' names. However, when you speak of your "African" art, it's just "tribal African art". At the very least, you could give the art pieces (and their creators) the respect they deserve, by mentioning the specific countries and cultures in the very vast African continent from which they emerged. Americans and this whole "Africa" thing is weird.

This library reminds me of my home library when I was a child. My elder brothers worked hard to build that library
