In Africa, hairstyle has been used
to project profession, gender, age and status. In the show such
distinctions are often illustrated by masks or statues, which can be
stylized to the point of caricature to emphasize a certain feature.
In such artwork,
the head can be made disproportionately larger. Often, this represents
the identity of a supernatural being or ancestor. The shape, style and
decoration of the head might determine the identity of who is being
portrayed. Facial paint, facial scars (scarification) or the hairdo
itself would also illustrate the identity of the figure.
The rise of the Afro in the 1960's turned into a visual manifestation of
Black Power. For years simply wearing an Afro was a political statement.
The Afro also illustrated another trend: the cross-pollination of the
black world. The Afro popped up in Africa, was worn at demonstrations
celebrating Brazil's black pride movement, Black Rio, and flourished in
Europe's black communities. By wearing the Afro, one was not simply
copying another American style. The Afro was
continue to be
a symbol of the solidarity of the black world.
