Nina Seferović was among those intellectuals who persevered in their mission to carefully study and document the world around them. Through the process of discovering little known cultures of Ethiopia and also through her work and the objects that she brought back with her, she initiated a new wave of interest in the ancient civilizations of Africa. It is to this passionate and tireless activism that we owe the formation of the core of today's Ethiopian collection at the Museum of African Art, the regional centre for the research and representation of African cultures in southeast Europe.
The displayed objects, both of a sacred and profane nature, judging by the importance they held within traditional Ethiopian communities, have permanently and profoundly expanded the collection of the Museum of African Art in Belgrade, Servia. The gesture made by Ambassador Nusret Seferović and his family: his wife Emilija, daughter Nada and grandson David who bequeathed this collection to the museum in memory of Nina Seferović will, the museum is convinced, be an incentive for many known and unknown future benefactors that might step forward in the coming decades.
