Description
Illustrated with large, crisp photographs that almost let you feel the texture of the museum pieces they depict, this catalog of the Paul and Dora Janssen-Arts Collection presents some of the finest masterworks in existence of pre-Columbian art in the Americas. From superbly fashioned Colombian gold pieces that look curiously like modern sculpture to a caricature of a howling dog—carved by a Mayan artist some 2,000 years ago—that perfectly evokes an action that any dog lover today would recognize, the book reveals a wealth of powerful and profound creative expression.
