THE CRADLE OF HUMANITY
The artistic representations of this emerging humanity (engravings, paintings, sculptures ...) are present on almost the entire African continent. Animals occupy a primordial place. Over the centuries and still today, these wild creatures inspire and fascinate people around the world.

The African continent covers 6% of the surface of the globe and 20% of the surface of land areas. Its total area with its islands is around 30.5 million km². There are 54 countries, or about a quarter of all the countries in the world. With more than 1.2 billion inhabitants, Africa is the second most populous continent after Asia.
