With over 10,000 visitors expected this year, the tribal arts market continues to grow with extra efforts made by exhibitors to propose interesting thematic shows with high quality objects, that often provide viewers with a chance to further develop their knowledge.

In a world that has too often lost touch with its roots, the renewal of interest in objects that tell of the origins of our civilisation is becoming ever stronger. There is an undeniable attraction to what is complex, strange and mysterious, all which lies in Parcours des Mondes 2013.

Parcours des Mondes will take place at various locations in Paris, from 10-15th September 2013.
