Eric Edwards has been gathering the artefacts for decades and keeping them at home. But now he wants his collection to reach a wider audience.
JOHANNESBURG - Eric Edwards, a Brooklyn native, has spent the last couple of year collecting over 2000 African artworks, from a 4000 year-old Nubian head, a Nigerian palace drum to a Cameroonian Bamaliki helmet.
A former telecom&39;s executive, Edwards houses these works in his apartment in Brooklyn.
His wish, however, is to build a Cultural Museum of African Art (CMAA), where these works can be kept and exhibited.
He has spent over 44 years amassing his collection.
