Art arranged into regional areas of culture: The Plains; The Southwest-Southern Athabascans and Rancheria; California; Great Basin and Pacific Plateau; Pacific Northwest Coast; The Actic Coast; and, the tribes of the Woodlands. Each of these areas separated by a title page w/a unique design in rich gilt. The dynamic art and fine craftmanship of the North American Indian are expressions of a vanishing culture. The simple sophistication, endless variations of motifs, and the sheer aesthetic beauty of these works warrant a closer look. This volume is a study of the whole range of artistic expression of these vital peoples-the pottery and silverwork of the Pueblos of the Southwest, the wooden masks of the Eskimo and the Tlingit, the beadwork of the Plains and Pacific Pateau tribes, and the basketry of the California natives, to name a few. A monumental treatise of classic Native American art. A monumental work. Includes a full list of photos and plates and a complete bibliography. Printed and bound in Japan. 447 pages. Insured post.
