Use the SEARCH window to enter a single word (e.g. antelope) or several words (e.g. kongo figure mirror) to get started. If your search produces too many results, you can refine it by adding terms in the SEARCH window. You may search any word used in contemporary cataloging of the image (e.g. power figure) and any word used in the original caption (e.g. fetish).
Many illustrations contain multiple objects; we consider the whole image to be the "parent image" and often separately catalog each figurative object within it as a "sub-image." You can restrict your search to parent (i.e. whole) images by checking the PARENT IMAGES ONLY box.
Any number you enter in the SEARCH window will be interpreted as an RAAI inventory number.
In each record, the applicable original publication text and other publication information is at the top of the page; below the heavy line appear modern research and cataloguing
