Artful Animals

The Museum of African Art in Washington, DC has a wonderful online exhibit called Artful Animals.Check Spelling

When we were in Burikina Faso , one of our guides was very excited to show us the sacred mudfish, but he wasn't really able to explain their significance, After seeing the the exhibit I know why they are so important. Even important enought to be on the money in Burkina Faso.

A great tool for teaching about African culture, the exhibit is also fascinating reading for adults.
Make sure you take the time to look at all of the animals.
