  • Foreign Cloth, Local Habits: Clothing, Regalia, and the Art of Conversion
           in the Early Modern Kingdom of Kongo

    • Abstract: ABSTRACT From their king’s decision to embrace Catholicism at the turn of the sixteenth century to the advent of imperial colonialism in the late eighteen hundreds, the men and women of the central African kingdom of Kongo creatively mixed, merged, and redefined local and foreign visual forms, religious thought, and political concepts into the novel, coherent, but also constantly evolving worldview of Kongo Christianity. Sartorial practices and regalia in particular showcased the artful conversion of the realm under the impetus of its monarchs and aristocrats. In their clothing and insignia, the kingdom’s elite combined and recast foreign and local, old and new, material and emblems into heralds of Kongo Christian power, wealth, and, eventually history. I propose to use the concept of the space of correlation as a key to analyze these elaborate, and constantly evolving religious, political, and material transformations through an attentive focus on cultural objects such as clothing, hats, swords, and saint figures.RESUMO Da decisão do rei de abraçar o catolicismo na virada do século XVI até o avanço do colonialismo imperialista do final do século XIX, os homens e mulheres do reino do Congo na África central criativamente misturaram, fundiram e redefiniram formas visuais locais e estrangeiras, pensamento religioso e conceitos políticos numa visão de mundo original, coerente e em constante evolução do cristianismo congo. Práticas de vestimenta e, em especial, insígnias reais demonstram a astuciosa conversão do reino sob o ímpeto de seus monarcas e aristocratas. Através de suas vestimentas e insígnias a elite do reino combinou e remodelou o estrangeiro e o local, o velho e o novo, materiais e emblemas nos arautos de poder, riqueza e, inevitavelmente, história cristã no Congo. Proponho utilizar o conceito de espaço de correlação como elemento-chave para analisar essas elaboradas transformações religiosas, políticas e materiais, em evolução constante, de forma a estabelecer um foco minucioso em objetos culturais tais como indumentária, chapéus, espadas e imagens religiosas.
       
  • “Clear as the sky, dark like Luembe’s water”: trajectories, uses and
           meanings of the glass beads between the peoples of the West-Central Africa
           (Lunda, 1884-1888)

    • Abstract: RESUMO Este artigo tem por objetivo explorar a polissemia das contas de vidro entre as sociedades centro-ocidentais africanas descritas pelo expedicionário português Henrique Augusto Dias de Carvalho em sua incursão pela região da Lunda (África Centro-Ocidental) no final do século XIX. Por meio das narrativas sobre as populações africanas e de aspectos de sua cultura material registrados pelo viajante europeu, buscamos discutir os múltiplos usos sociais, culturais, políticos e econômicos que as chamadas contas vítreas alcançaram entre os grupos locais, relativizando, por sua vez, determinadas interpretações que concebiam tais artigos como meras “bugigangas” solicitadas pelos povos centro-africanos. Reconhecidas como um dos itens indispensáveis por figuras como expedicionários, mercadores e missionários que almejavam percorrer diferentes territórios africanos, as contas de vidro possibilitam compreender as distintas formas de inserção desses objetos no cotidiano das populações centro-ocidentais africanas. Partindo desta chave analítica, que privilegia o entendimento dos fenômenos de apropriação e ressignificação de artigos europeus, especificamente as contas, no universo social das populações locais, o presente artigo visa ressaltar as potencialidades dos estudos da cultura material para uma compreensão mais aprofundada das interações estabelecidas entre europeus e africanos no final do século XIX.ABSTRACT This article aims to explore the polysemy of glass beads between African Central Western societies described by the Portuguese expeditionary Henrique Augusto Dias de Carvalho in his incursion through the Lunda’s region (West Central-Africa) in the late nineteenth century. Through the narratives of African populations and aspects of their material culture recorded by the European traveler, we intend to discuss the multiple social uses, cultural, political and economic factors that calls glass beads had reached between local groups, relativizing, in turn, certain interpretations which had conceived such items as mere “trinkets” requested by the central African people. Recognized as one of the essential items by figures such as expeditionaries, merchants and missionaries who aimed to visit other African territories, the glass beads allow us to understand the different forms of insertion of these objects in the daily life of African Central Western populations. From this analysis key that focuses on understanding the phenomena of appropriation and reinterpretation of European goods, specifically the glass beads, in the social universe of the local population, this article aims to highlight the potential of the material culture studies to further understanding of the interactions established between Europeans and Africans in the late nineteenth century.
       
  • Museological singularities of a board with sculptures in dialogue: from
           the alambamento to marriage in Cabinda (Angola)

    • Abstract: RESUMO Em Cabinda (noroeste de Angola), uma região do antigo Reino do Congo, existiu uma ancestral tradição gráfica observada em artefatos do cotidiano ou rituais que tem sido objeto de pesquisas em domínios multidisciplinares. O presente artigo remete para uma das possíveis reflexões em torno de uma tábua frustemente esculpida em alto-relevo, de que se desconhecem outros espécimes, e que integra a coleção recolhida pelos Missionários do Espírito Santo, atualmente em depósito no Museu da Ciência da Universidade de Coimbra. Não foi o valor estético que nos seduziu mas sim entender o seu significado, provocação que encontrou resposta na obra de José Martins Vaz, No mundo dos Cabindas, único suporte encontrado, até à data, que divulga a interpretação gráfica da peça e descodifica os motivos escultóricos. Esse objeto reflete um acordo de casamento e corporiza ideias, expressas por formas gravadas e símbolos, detentores de saberes tradicionais, intrinsecamente associados ao riquíssimo acervo da cultura material, incluindo a caixa nkobe-bingu, divindade protetora da família. Portadora de um significado singular, a tábua ou dístico de casamento espelha a dificuldade de acordo entre as famílias dos noivos quanto ao alambamento a negociar e sela o tradicional contrato de matrimónio dos Cabinda, etnia aparentada com o povo Kongo. Não sendo possível comparar com outras interpretações, o estudo desenvolvido permitirá compreender melhor o universo espiritual Cabinda refletido nas suas criações artísticas. Alargando horizontes de pesquisa, a tábua proporcionou um exercício museológico para o entendimento da realidade social da sua génese e de rituais de casamento de outros povos, em várias épocas.ABSTRACT In Cabinda (north-west of Angola), a region of the kingdom of Congo, there was an ancient graphical tradition observed in quotidian artifacts or rituals, about which several studies in multidisciplinary areas have been released. Not knowing other similar specimens, this article refers to one of the possible reflections around a high relief carved board and it is part of a collection gathered by the Missionários do Espírito Santo currently at the deposit of Science Museum (Coimbra University, Portugal). It was not the aesthetic value that seduced us, but understand its meaning, provocation that found response in José Martins Vaz’ book, No mundo dos Cabinda, only support found to date, which discloses the graphic interpretation of the piece and decodes the sculptural motifs. This object reflects a marriage agreement and embodies ideas expressed by sculpted forms and symbols, holders of traditional knowledge intrinsically associated with the rich collection of material culture, including one nkobe-bingu box, the family protective divinity. Carrying a singular meaning, this wedding board expresses the difficulty of the agreement between the bride and the groom families on the alambamento (dowry) to negotiate and it seals the Cabinda´s traditional marriage contract, being this people related to the Kongo ethnicity. Not being possible to compare with other interpretation, this study will led to a better understanding of Cabinda´s spiritual universe, reflected in their artistic creations. Broadening horizons of research, the artifact provided a museological exercise for understanding the social reality of its genesis and of marriage rituals of other populations in distinct time-frames.
       
  • As esculturas cokwe como respostas às assimetrias civilizacionais

    • Abstract: RESUMO Fundada em 1917, a Companhia de Diamantes de Angola (Diamang) ocupava uma vasta região da Lunda Norte e Lunda Sul. Além das ações voltadas para a exploração de diamantes, essa empresa concessionária constituiu em 1936 o Museu do Dundo, um espaço destinado a colecionar objetos relacionados, sobretudo, aos povos que habitavam a sua área de atuação. Os objetivos cada vez mais ambiciosos e o receio da extinção de uma arte reminiscente do “tempo tribal” levaram o Museu do Dundo a organizar não apenas expedições de recolhas de objetos, mas também a contratar e manter “protegidos” em seus domínios escultores de madeira e de marfim a fim de evitar que as transformações ocasionadas pela situação colonial influenciassem os trabalhos desses homens. Este artigo tem como objetivo apresentar algumas reflexões sobre como os anseios fictícios do Museu em relação a esses escultores foram fundamentais para compreender as constantes tensões e dificuldades em enquadrar em seu espaço não apenas esses próprios homens, mas também as suas produções.ABSTRACT The Companhia de Diamantes de Angola (Diamang) was founded in 1917 and occupied a vast region of Lunda’s north and south areas. Aside from the activities around diamond mining this concessionary company also created a museum in 1936. The Museu do Dundo (Dundo Museum) was a space dedicated to collect objects related to the inhabitants who lived in the area exploited by the company. The increasingly ambitious objectives of the Museum and the concern regarding the disappearance of a reminiscent art from “tribal times” resulted not only in the organization of collecting expeditions but also in the recruitment and “protection” of wood and ivory sculptors inside the company’s domains to avoid that their work were influenced by changes caused by the colonialism. The main objective of this paper is to present some considerations regarding how the museum’s fictitious expectations regarding these sculptors were crucial to understand the continuous tensions and difficulties faced to accommodate not only these men but also their work in its space.
       
  • Migração makonde, produção de esculturas e mercado de arte no
           Tanganyika: a questão do estilo Shetani (1950-60)

    • Abstract: RESUMO O presente artigo incide sobre parte da minha pesquisa de doutorado que teve como foco a produção de arte makonde em diálogo com a história política de Moçambique entre 1950 e 1974. A investigação de caráter interdisciplinar envolveu fontes de naturezas diversas, como a documentação produzida no período colonial, assim como uma bibliografia acessada em diferentes acervos de Lisboa e na Biblioteca do Museu Etnológico de Berlim, além de relatos orais coletados em Moçambique entre 2012 e 2014. Essas fontes orais foram produzidas, especialmente, em entrevistas e conversas com escultores, os quais denominam suas respectivas peças como arte makonde. O presente texto discute o contexto de produção de um estilo de escultura específico conhecido como shetani, que foi criado no território vizinho do Tanganyika (atual Tanzânia), no final da década de 1950, por Samaki Likonkoa, artista makonde de Moçambique. Analiso aqui a referida produção no âmbito da vivência migratória internacional dos makonde de Moçambique para o Tanganyika, motivada pela busca por melhores condições de trabalho e de vida. O caso da produção desse tipo de escultura ilustra, aqui, a circulação de pessoas, objetos e conhecimento entre o sul e o norte do rio Rovuma no contexto colonial português das décadas de 1950 e 1960.ABSTRACT This article focuses on part of my PhD research that focused on makonde art production in dialogue with the political history of Mozambique between 1950 and 1974. The research of a interdisciplinary nature involved diverse sources such as the documentation produced in the colonial period as well as a bibliography accessed in different collections of Lisbon and in the Library of the Ethnological Museum of Berlin, besides oral reports collected in Mozambique between 2012 and 2014. These oral sources were produced, especially, in interviews and conversations with sculptors, who call their respective pieces as makonde art. This paper discusses the context of production of a specific sculpture style known as shetani, which was created in the neighboring Tanganyika (now Tanzania), in the late 1950s, by Samaki Likonkoa, artist makonde of Mozambique. I analyze this production in the context of the international migratory experience of the makonde from Mozambique to Tanganyika, motivated by the search for better conditions of work and life. The case of the production of this type of sculpture illustrates here the circulation of people, objects and knowledge between the south and the north of the Rovuma river in the Portuguese colonial context of the 1950s and 1960s.
       
  • Views on African art in Brazil: lightings in the track of the hidden’s
           authorship of the Afro-Brazilian objects in museums

    • Abstract: RESUMO Examinando objetos relacionados aos antigos candomblés preservados em coleções, Marianno Carneiro da Cunha perfilou uma tradição estética nagô-iorubana criada no Brasil que tem sido considerada como uma das primeiras formulações da arte afro-brasileira, se não uma continuidade da arte africana no Brasil. Expandimos a amostragem enraizada nessa tradição descrita por esse estudioso, chegando a um novo corpus que apresentamos neste artigo, tentando estabelecer as potencialidades da análise estilística que ele empregou, e introduziu no Brasil, como procedimento metodológico no estudo da cultura material de origem africana. Os dados obtidos revelam que, muito além do que originalmente representam, esses objetos podem se constituir apenas em um repertório visual emblemático de abordagens híbridas da produção acadêmica sobre as culturas africanas tanto quanto sobre o negro no Brasil, caso eles não venham a ser retomados através das suas expressões de materialidade próprias e individuais.ABSTRACT In examining objects preserved in collections related of ancients Candomble’s Terreiros, Marianno Carneiro da Cunha finded out and profiled a Nago-Yoruba aesthetic tradition created in Brazil that have been considered as one of the first form of Afro-Brazilian Art, or a continuation of African Art in Brazil. We expanded the schollar’s established sampling rooted in this tradition in gathering a new corpus presented in this article, in trying to set potentialities of the stylistic analysis that he used and introduced in Brazil as a methodological procedure employed in the study of material culture of African origin. The obtained data reveal that these objects, far beyond from what they originally represent, can constitute merely an emblematic visual repertoire of the hybrid approaches adopted in the Brazilian academic production on the Black in the country, just as on African cultures, if these objects are not retaked under of self-expressions of materiality.
       
  • Os limites das capitanias hereditárias do sul e o conceito de
           território

    • Abstract: RESUMO Analisam-se os limites das capitanias do sul (1534-1700), chegando a interessantes conclusões. As terras da Capitania de Santana, em função da estimativa que se faça para a longitude de Tordesilhas, ou pertenciam à Espanha ou formavam pequenas parcelas descontínuas. O limite norte da Capitania de São Tomé (Pero de Góis), definido por acordo entre os dois confrontantes, afetava um terceiro território, coisa que não se percebeu. O limite sul dessa capitania na carta de doação indicava uma linha correndo diretamente para oeste, enquanto que na de seu vizinho (Martim Afonso) indicava uma linha correndo a noroeste. Essa mesma direção também está definida para o limite sul desse lote, complicando a partição das terras. Essas fronteiras artificiais nunca foram demarcadas nem tidas em conta, e tanto os donatários como a Coroa foram criando vilas e cidades em terreno alheio: umas vezes por não levar em conta os limites das cartas de doação (São Paulo, Santana de Parnaíba, Mogi das Cruzes, São Sebastião, Taubaté, Paranaguá, por exemplo); outras por ocupação indevida, mas necessária (Rio de Janeiro); por dolo ou extrapolação de poderes (Cabo Frio); ou mesmo em terras de Castela (Curitiba). A isso veio somar-se a questão de jurisdição sobre a Capitania de Santo Amaro (a querela entre as casas de Monsanto e Vimieiro); a questão da extrapolação de jurisdição (Angra dos Reis e Paraty); e finalmente a má-fé e as tropelias de juízes, capitães-gerais e da Coroa. O entendimento dessas questões, facilitada pela cartografia histórica, permitiu revelar pontos desconhecidos da história das capitanias, explicar melhor a formação dos limites dos atuais Estados e aprofundar-se no entendimento dos conceitos da época para indicar o território: termo, sertões, fundos e outros.ABSTRACT We analyze the limits of the southern Captaincies (1534-1700), reaching interesting conclusions. The Terras de Santana Captaincy, depending on the estimate of the longitude of the Tordesillas line, or belonged to Spain or are formed by small discrete portions. The northern limit of the Captaincy of São Tomé (Pero de Gois) defined by agreement between the two neighbors affected a third territory, something that was not perceived. The southern boundary of this Captaincy in the Donation Letter indicated a line running directly to the west, while in his neighbor Letter (Martim Afonso) indicated a line running northwest. This same direction is also set to the southern limit of that lot, complicating the partition of the lands. These artificial boundaries have never been demarcated or taken into account, and both the donatories, as the crown, were creating towns and cities in foreign land: sometimes for not taking into account the limits of the Donation Letters (São Paulo, Santana de Parnaiba, Mogi das Cruzes, São Sebastião, Taubaté, Paranaguá, for example); others by improper occupation, even when necessary (Rio de Janeiro); intentionally or extrapolation of powers (Cabo Frio); or even in the land of Castile (Curitiba). To this has added up the question of jurisdiction over the Captaincy of Santo Amaro (the quarrel between the houses of Monsanto and Vimieiro); the question of extrapolation jurisdiction (Angra dos Reis and Paraty) and finally the bad faith and mischief of judges, general captains and the crown. The understanding of these issues, facilitated by historical cartography, allows us to understand unknown point of the history of the captaincies; a better explain of the formation of the limits of current States and a deeper the understanding of the concepts of that time to indicate the territory: termo, sertão (hinterlands), fundos (funds) and others.
       
  • Cachimbos europeus de cerâmica branca, séculos XVI ao XIX: parâmetros
           básicos para análise arqueológica

    • Abstract: RESUMO O tabaco foi introduzido na Europa no final do século XV. Desde então, uma das formas mais comuns para o seu consumo foi o cachimbo, além do rapé, do tabaco de mascar, do charuto e, mais recentemente, dos cigarros. Os cachimbos de cerâmica branca, largamente produzidos e utilizados na Europa desde o século XV, são encontrados em sítios arqueológicos históricos ao redor do mundo, incluindo no Brasil, em decorrência do comércio internacional, que gradualmente se intensificou após o início da conquista europeia. Eles funcionam como excelentes elementos para datação de sítios e estratos arqueológicos, tendo sido estudados em vários países a partir dessa abordagem. Ainda, esse tipo de artefato, mais que fornecer datações, permite identificar redes comerciais entre nações e desenvolver discussões de cunho social e cultural. Contudo, eles foram pouco estudados no Brasil. Visando contribuir com os estudos nacionais dessa categoria material, este artigo oferece uma revisão da literatura internacional acerca do histórico da produção dos cachimbos europeus de caulim, incluindo apresentação dos principais centros produtores; da morfologia e decoração desses produtos, considerando a cronologia do fabrico; e dos métodos de análise dos diferentes cachimbos de caulim no âmbito da arqueologia histórica.ABSTRACT Tobacco was introduced in Europe at the end of the 15th century. Since then, one of the most traditional means for its use has been the pipe, next to the powder version, chewing, cigars, and, more recently, cigarettes. White clay tobacco pipes, widely produced and used in Europe since the 15th century, are found in historical archaeological sites around the world, including Brazil, due to international trade, which gradually intensified with the European conquest of the New World. They are excellent guides for dating archaeological sites and layers. In addition, this type of artifact, more than a dating tool, permits identifying trading networks between nations and developing discussions of cultural and social nature. These pipes, however, have been understudied in Brazil. In order to contribute to studies of this type of artifact in our country, this paper offers a revision of the international literature on the history of clay pipe production in Europe, including the presentation of main production centers; morphology and decoration of these products, considering issues of fabrication chronology; and the methods used in Historical Archaeology for analyzing clay tobacco pipes.
       
  • O silêncio dos inocentes: o papel dos animais em narrativas
           expositivas

    • Abstract: RESUMO Os animais são entidades polissêmicas que se tornaram objetos de museus tão cedo as coleções surgiram. Neste trabalho, o animal é entendido como interface entre duas áreas: enquanto objeto de estudo da zoologia e também como musealia. Discutem-se, então, as funções comunicativas exercidas por animais em exposições contemporâneas de museus de história natural. Para tanto, foram descritas e analisadas exposições de três museus sul-americanos de história natural: “Las aves” - Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales Bernadino Rivadavia; “Tiempo y materia: laberintos de la evolución” - Museo de La Plata; e “Conchas, corais e borboletas” - Museu Nacional do Rio de Janeiro. Nossa análise sugere que a construção teórica das narrativas está restrita aos textos e que os animais emprestam suas estruturas para ilustração, servindo como evidências da realidade e fornecendo materialidade da teoria, restritos ao seu apelo estético, tridimensionalidade e capacidade de atração de público.ABSTRACT Animals are polysemic entities that became objects of museums as early collections have emerged. For this study, the animal is understood as interface between two areas: as cientific object of zoology stydies and as musealia. We discuss then the communication functions performed by animals in contemporaneous exhibitions of natural history museums. Therefore, it was described and analyzed in three exhibitions of South American natural history museums: Las aves - Museo de Ciencias Naturales Bernadino Rivadavia; “Tiempo y materia: laberintos de la evolución” - Museo de La Plata; e “Conchas, corais e borboletas” - Museu Nacional do Rio de Janeiro. Our analysis suggests that theoretical construction of the narratives is restricted to texts and animals lend their structures for illustration, serving as evidence of reality and providing materiality for the theory, restricted to its aesthetic appeal, three-dimensionality and capacity of public attraction.
