The Museum

The Museum

The Design of the Museum is shaped as a Horn. The Horn is synonymous with a trumpet which is a musical instrument often used in religious ceremonies. However, in Africa, the Horn means much more to our ancient traditions and culture. In Africa, the Horn has historically been associated with the Cow’s horn, Ram’s horn, and the Elephant’s tusk, all representing great strength, yet great humility. The African Horn is usually blown during special ceremonies signifying a message that something or someone great is coming.

The Museum Design

The Design of the Museum is shaped as a Horn. The Horn is synonymous with a trumpet which is a musical instrument often used in religious ceremonies. However, in Africa, the Horn means much more to our ancient traditions and culture. In Africa, the Horn has historically been associated with the Cow’s horn, Ram’s horn, and the Elephant’s tusk, all representing great strength, yet great humility. The African Horn is usually blown during special ceremonies signifying a message that something or someone great is coming.

The horn serves as a voice imitation of profound messages that cannot be spoken out loud. It can be blown to appease the ancestors and the land, go to war, welcome Royalties and Dignitaries, to recount history and pass on information or be a rallying call for a select group of people to come together.This is why we chose the Horn as the shape of the Museum. This Horn will be a beacon to the Pan African Family world-wide, representing the proverbial urgent call to gather ourselves in unity for true reconciliation and liberation.

Location
