TIFTON - It looks like a collection you'd find in one of the world's finest art or history museums, but it's in the Tifton Museum of Arts and Heritage.
"I'm happy to be able to bring it here and have it free, so people can have an understanding of what sort of cultural differerences are really similarities," art collector Sue Rochfort said.
It's more than 50 artifacts collected from several African villages over two centuries, now all in the possesion of Tift County's Sue Rochfort.
"It transcends all kinds of time and all kinds of boundaries," Rochfort said. "It goes straight to the heart."
The artifacts were crafted in painstaking detail with archaic tools, and for many it might be their only chance to see such a window into african art and culture, because it's quickly fading away.
"Where they used to be carrying around weapons, now they are carrying cellphones," she said. The exhibit will be gone from the museum after April 8. The items are on display Tuesday through Fridays.
Rochfort is actually a collector of artifacts and antiques from all around the world. They are on display at the Southern Art Gallery and Sue's Antiques.
